Is it a constant knock or just on cold starts?

Need more details. Location, rpm range, etc. Could be as simple as something loose or OHV valve train noise or something major like a spun bearing.

I'm having a bit of knocking coming from my OHV too. It seems to come and go as I drive, but definately more noticable upon start up. My engine has a lot of kms on her, I'm thinking it could be some worn lifters. Sound about right?

Most likely.
