93 loyale knocking under load

But I think you're right - if the knock is just under load and not all the time I would guess that it is timing.

the stock timing sould be 20 deg btdc +/-2 deg
my experience with a rod knock, the knock would be intermittent upon startups. and also you would hear it as load changes, such as revving in neutral, you would hear it at the moment you let off the gas, and then again when it returned to idle, it would go away at load or negative load.
lets evaluate and eliminate anything else before we decide it has a rod knock!

I used to always think the worst when mine makes a noise (Its my only car..no back-up and its my baby). But I have learned to always look into the simple things first before thinking the worst.
