I have had this engine for a number of years, but never run it until today.

The engine starts fine and I ran a couple of tanks through it rich at around 4000 rpm.

The problem I have is that when you open the throttle and the rpm increases there is a knocking sound like pre ignition. Has anyone encountered this before?

You could try 2 new glow plugs - of the same type. Plug temperature will change the ignition timing.
