Take the cylinder off and see if you have side to side motion on the rod or odd movement. The bottom end bearings may be shot.

A loud knock is not a good sign for sure. Looking at your pics there seems to be some metal shavings.

I'd guess (just a guess) you need to rebuild the top and bottom end.

Does the cylinder head have a bunch of pock marks in the combustion chamber?
