Default Re: Chasing the knock.

Can you tell about where the knock seems to be coming from ?

Have you checked the lash of the timing gears ? Anything more than about .009" and they'll rattle. Yours don't look very good from the picture, but, checking the lash is whats needed.

Running the engine with the timing pin inserted and putting pressure on the gear is sometimes a good way to determine if the gear is bad/worn.
