    had the same problem on my 110 v8< skimmed the hand brake drum ( it had highspots) and problem went away. ask the guy that does the job to grind the drum for you. much better that machining

    Yeah it must be the hand brake.

    I took a short drive and pulled up the hand brake slightly when I started to hear the knocking and it got drastically worse.

    I then went under again and loosened the hand brake adjuster as much as I could and took him for another test drive; the sound is 95% gone.

    Thanx for all the advice and a bit of healthy debate, haha.

    I will get the drum to the local engineering guy and see if I can order the shoes from RSA. Might as well do it all while I'm busy.
