How is your clutch functioning ?

It is a two-stage clutch, does the p.t.o. stop spinning when the pedal is fully depressed ? If yes, at that time there is nothing turning/moving in the transmission area except the clutch itself.
So could the clutch itself be the source of the knocking ? If it occurs at mid to high r.p.m.'s, maybe it is a broken clutch facing that is forced outward thus hitting the transmission case when subjected to the higher revs.

There is an inspection cover under the clutch if you chose to have a look see.

The PTO stops when the clutch is fully depressed. It is certainly possible that there is something wrong with the clutch since you tell me that nothing in the transmission is turning when the clutch pedal is fully depressed.
I am going to re-fill the transmission and really pay attention to the effect of the clutch on the noise. Thanks very much for the reply!
Eric - I am in NW Illinois near Moline. Where in Illinois do you live?

I live near Litchfield.

I have given more thought to my first post. Since your clutch is functioning properly, the knock would not be coming from a loose friction pad because that noise would stop when the clutch is disengaged.

But since other components of the clutch would still be spinning, your noise could still be clutch related.
