No problems when running, just at idle, and it seems to have corrected itself. (Well. ok, with a little help from me -- and this forum.)

I installed new plugs, put 7 oz of Seafoam in the tank, filled it up and went for a a ride. When I got back, the knock was gone. I did notice that it's idling a little over 1000 RPM now -- that's up a couple hundred, so maybe it just needed to be run more.

Anyway, thanks to all who commented. Your help is much appreciated.
