Default Changed water pump/engine knocks

I did a quick search and didn't find anything so here's what I did. I have a 96 Ram 1500 with a 318. It has about 85K on it. It was my Dad's truck and when he passed away I bought it form the estate. It was very well taken care of when Dad had it. I only put a few thousand miles a year on it, so it sets alot. I went to the dump and it over heated, luckily I know the guys at the dump well enough that they gave me 2 gallons of antifreeze to get home. Pulled the water pump and it was rusty but looked ok. Pulled the thermostat and it was packed solid with rust. Put on a new pum and thermostat. While I was at it I put in new plugs, wires and air filter. I started it up and I have a knock. Relatively slow steady knock. It does increase when reved up, but it's not a fast sound like the impellers hitting or the fan hitting the shroud. I checked to see if I might have crossed a couple plug wires, but they are ok. Any Ideas? Thanks, Joe.
