did you grenade the basket and throw alot of debris around in the motor? take a very long, hard and detailed look at the crank gear to be sure that it's not chipped or has any embedded debris in the gear...this will make it knock...i've seen them where the noise will come and go...

if you look on the clutch cover, there is a small three inch groove on the inside of the cover, if it looks like its shinny, it might be rubbing there....what i did was dremel it wider and my noise went away, mine did it when i got a different clutch..

This doesn't have anything to do with your noise, but your going to want to drain the oil and clean out the oil pick up tube. When my clutch basket broke I had a TON of stuff in the pickup
