Any updates I think I have the same knocking noise, sounds like a cam shaft or tappet metal on metal banging.I get it ataround 2000 rpm and if you floor it then the banging noisegoes away, no smoke etc runs like a swiss watch but around 2000rpm sounds as if a blacksmith is hammering his anvil.
ANY IDEAS OR UPDATES WOULD BE GREAT

Check the crankshaft pulley have bought 2 where they have come flying off at a great rate of knots and it's 1 heavy bit of metal to be flying around

Checked out the pulley and all ok (thanks Bruno)the noise see to be coming from the top left of the engine as you look at it

How often does the cam belt have to be changed ????????
my one has done 84.000klms and its 5.5 years old is it due a change ?????????

If I take off the rocker cover will I be able to see the cam belt tensioner or do I have to rip the side covers off ??????????

5 years or 60,000 miles which ever comes first. To see the tensioner you would have to take the timing covers off and by that time you might as well change the belt
