Changing Oil Pan Gasket

Within the next couple of weeks im going to be changing my oil pan gasket. Its developed a very slight leak on the front, under the (?crank pulley?). I tightened down all the bolts on the pan and it seems to have stopped it for now, but I still want to fix it right. Is there anything else I should look at or have changed while I have the pan off? I also have a very quite knock when the engine is cold, any ideas? It has 158K miles on it.

Thanks in advance,
Leroux

If your rear main seal is leaking too, it is a good time to replace it when the pan is off. But, I am not sure I would replace if it wasn't leaking.
