Re: Engine knocking
My friend had a light knock in his engine, the problem was there wasent enough engine oil! He filled it up and perfect. I had to change my engine because of a bad crank or somthing, i donno, it was knocking bad and even tho i replaced the bad rod bearings, it continued so i pulled a block out of a swift and works great. I still have a little knock and engine noise, i set the valve clearances according to the haynes manual (i know i should get a REAL manual :-) and it didnt go away, so once i get a timing ligh that works ill time it or mabe ill just play around with it by sound. I also had 3 of thoes tapered philips head screws come off, 2 were missing when i bought mysammy. One i found on the garage floor, i have no idea how it got there, and one i found all chewed up in the oil pan. a few months later i found one, upside down sitting on top of the thing where it screwes in.. weird.
