Engine knocking...

Car has started getting louder... and not in a good way.

Any opinions where to start?

I don't have the skills or garage space to drop the engine...

Here is about an 8 second clip of it...

Sorry, the system flagged your post as suspicious because it was your first post and contained an external link. I have approved it so you shouldn't have any more problems.

I don't have any feedback for you yet, except to mention (out of reflex, almost!) that I really hate single-carb setups on our motors....

Pull the plugs to see what they look like and if they are all okay then drain the oil and pull the taco plate to see what falls out with the oil. If the oil looks good then pull the valve covers to see if an adjuster has come loose or a push rod has gotten messed up.
