    alex,
    Was the engine real hot when it was knocking? Had you been running it real hard? Could have been a preignition knock brought on by an over heated engine.
    Has the knocking reoccurred?

    Did it sound like it wanted to stay running for a a split second, or was it just straight knocking.

    Hmmm thats weird. Only thing i can think of is lack of oil. I'd just say dont worry about it for now, keep your ear open and see if you notice anything really weird, other then that not much you can do.
