Question about 1987 Subaru Gl 4WD
First thing is to NOT attempt to run or drive it. Knocking is a sure sign that serious engine damage is starting to occur. Either your oil pump has failed or your engine is worn out. Take the car to a shop and have the engine checked out. A mechanical oil pressure gauge will give an accurate reading of how much oil pressure is actually there. A compression test will let you know the condition of the rest of the engine.
I would take it to an engine rebuilding shop for an assessment, just check to see if they have some experience on imports. They would be the most knowledgeable on what to do from here. You may be able to simply install a new oil pump and be good to go, or you may have to look at rebuilding or replacing the engine, but a few bucks right now at a professional shop could save a lot of time and money being wasted.
Hope this helps.
