are you sure its not piston slap? is the knock realative to your rpms? i had this happen a few months ago. one of my pistons got a little hot and galded up the wrist pin causing it to slap the cylinder wall on each stroke sounding like tap tap tap tap...... i took it apart and replaced it. good to go. back afterwhile.

What did you change? Did you change the piston rod bushing,the wrist pin,rings. How was the bore. Im not sure if it was possible to bend the rod slightly. I know others out there will give a lot more input. You can pull the one head and pop out the rod&piston and have a good look at the bore, plus do a really good check. If you didnt replace the wrist pin bushing that will give the slap back in a little time.
