might be a engine knock

I'm a new owner of a 2002 f350 7.3 powerstroke. Never owned a diesel before. I know they are louder then regular gas motors, but it allmost sounds like I have a knock. Don't feel loss of power or see smoke. Just not sure if I'm hearing a knock or normal operation. Any suggestions or comments would be highly appreciated.

thanks f350crew/long

I'd say without hearing it, no worries, the 7.3 is a loud motor.
