Hi guys. So I have just installed new rings. Now when accelerating I hear a tapping noise. Gets louder the harder you push on the gas. Is the knocking? I have never heard engine knock before. I set the ignition timing to 12 degrees with a timing light. I tried retarding and advancing it a bit but it still sounds the same. Any help in s much appreciated. Cheers

Put your ear under the car, if its louder down there then probably knock.

Unless the timing is a lot out, pinking only 'usually' happens when you put on the gas.

You can try a bar ( jack handle works! ) and press it against parts of the engine block to see if you can hear the noise better.

The hard thing is. You can't hear it when the car is stood still.
Only happens when driving and on the gas.
The noise is very consistent like a noisy tappet.
think I need to tie someone under the car while I drive. Lol
