From your description the starting system is working okay, but the motor is not running, and has a knock. That knock will have to investigated, it could be something serious (timing chain, crank, piston or rod bearings), to something slightly less serious (valvetrain noise). If you've replaced plugs and wires recently make sure the plugs are back on in the proper firing order.
