1992 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 300 miles

Hi I have a 92 mazda 323 with a brand new 1.8 DOHC engine rebuilt from my old protege I did the first 300 km of rodding like the cie told me to do it and it goes well then I did the oil change to get it ready for the next 600km but when I restarted the engine, it begun to knock so I stopped the engine then the day after two guy from two cie come to see the engine and one told me " it's normal you just need a valves adjustement" and the other said " it's the rod bearing knocking like this" I don't know who to believe do you have an idea and how can I know if it's one or the other
