is there a general rule of thumb on placement of nock. ie. even, 1/8 high etc. does it change with the draw wieght of bow? currently shoot 48# 28" off of shelf

No matter what I shoot, split-finger, three under, shelf, or elevated rest, I always seem to come out at 1/8" above based on arrow tune.

I start even and just keep playing until I get the best possible arrow flight, which usually seems to be around 1/8" high.

everyone is a little different - start high and tune until you find the sweet spot - and a double nock point is a good idea as well - especially if you shoot three fingers under.

Off the shelf, start at 1/2" above square.

Or better yet, read this and learn how to tune your bow so you aren't dependent upon others to take wild guesses for you.
Don't believe everything you think.

My nock sets on both of my two recurves are set at 5/8". I shoot split finger, one over, two under.
