Diesel knock

Charles Vernon I have a Massey Ferguson model 35 diesel industrial loader tractor. It is equipped with the 3-cyl. Perkins diesel. I just recently rebuilt the engine complete with head work including new valves, pistons, sleeves, rings, bearings, etc. The tractor runs and starts great and has plenty of power and no smoke. However, it seems to me the "diesel knock" may be louder than it should be. I have a 135 diesel and it is much quieter. Would timing have anything to do with this and, if so, how would one time the engine? (I did not remove or even touch the cam) Any suggestions will be appreciated.
AJ The timing train on that engine is gear driven and there is not much chance of the timing altering itself,should there be any play in the gears the timing would be late and would not cause a knock,there is a match mark on the pump mounting flange to the engine that should be lined up,you did not say if you had your pump and injectors done,engine ticking over crack each pipe in turn and you might find the cylinder that is making the knock and have a look at the injector.
