Not enough info I'm afraid. When you say a tap, do you mean a knock?

yes a knock and underpowered seemed to get us back ok no funny noises after we restarted it and no lumpy running seemed smooth just under powered. we think it may be running on one cylinder

Just not enough info.

Check plugs for spark
Are you running 1:100 oil, an overheating piston could knock
Run compression test.
Ensure fuel and filtration clean
Check fuel pump
Check gearbox oil for metal. A failing gearbox can knock.

A single knock and then power loss. Outside chance of a flywheel key shearing. My guess is you limped home?
