Re: Knocking Noise from Engine
You sure it's not a spun bearing?
I had that same problem with the 2.8 I had in my '83.
It only knocked at startup and at the top of the rev, just before upshifting. When it happened to me, it was the #3 piston bearing. too $ive for someone who was broke as I was to fix, so I junked the engine, dropped in a second-hand 2.8 I got from someone for $175 bucks, and drove it for a few months until it blew up too [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
