knocking after installing timing gears & chain..
I'm in a pile of doo doo here fellas. After reinstalling everything on my 87 YJ w/4.2 I'm hearing a knock that I've never quite heard before. I'm not sure if it's spark knock or not as I don't believe I've ever heard spark knocking. I do know that adjusting the timing via the distributor it's not going away. I believe I followed all the steps properly as far as setting initial timing is concerned. Did I forget to do anything funky? I'm perplexed and my wife is not pleased about this one bit. Anyone with wives that think you spend too much time on your jeep will know what I'm talking about. But mine has to relinquish her convertable BMW for me to commute to work. And quite frankly, I'm too immature to drive this car as I haven't used it one day and not hit at least 120 mph. I WANT MY JEEP BACK! PLEASE HELP! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
