Question about Ford Ranger
If you have adjusted then to spec then clearly the knocking can't come from them. If you are sure the noise is coming from the upper part of the engine then it's most likely detonations caused by bad fuel or overheated sparkplugs. Change the plugs and replace the fuel in the tank.

ADJUSTMENT Although it is sometimes possible to reuse an old cylinder head cover gasket, in most cases it makes more sense to purchase a new one before beginning the procedure. Some vehicles may require the use of silicone sealant either with or without a new cover gasket. For more details, please refer to the cylinder head cover procedures in Engine & Engine Overhaul of this repair guide and refer to the gasket manufacturer's instructions.
