New motor & stange noise ?? (FIXED)

I installed another 1.6 I got from Max. It runs great! My only problem is and it isn't motor related, is that when I let up on the clutch slowly, I hear this "groan" noise that comes from the front. It's hard to pinpoint alone. Any ideas? Thanks.....

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

First and most obvious question, are the motor mounts tight? Then all six bolts to the tranny? Then, is it clutch cable related? Engage only? I am about to put the 16v in Heidi's this weekend. I expect it will be a lot of work....

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

Is it continuous or only brief while the clutch is engaging?

I'll be back.

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

I will double check, but I do remember tightening them. On my setup, I only have 4 bolts on the tranny. It occurs only when engaging slowly...very slowly.
What could the clutch cable be doing or not doing?
The 16 valve sounds like a lot of work but when it is done, I'm sure you'll be tickled pink!
I hope you Grandfather is healing well. Prayers are being sent.....

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

How old is the clutch cable? I know they can be problematic. My grandfather has a big burn mark on his chest over his heart where they electricuted him to get his defibulation back on track. He also has gauze all over his arms from having so many lines in him and blood taken. He looks tired and worn out, but happy to be back home (came home on wednesday afternoon) and i was glad to see him. Poor guy, looks like he had a rough time of it, and my grandmother is going to be SOL when he goes. She can barely function without him....

You know when i drive the trackers with the sixteen valve in them, i dont find it all that fast or torquey, but im hoping the difference is somehow translated in the install to Heidi's rig. Max

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

Does it seem to coincide with the motion of the clutch or something else? Can you recreate the noise with the engine off?

I'll be back.

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

I just went outside and checked...The passenger side motor mount was a bit loose. Simple fix. Went for a test drive and it seemed to have cleared up .....only to return several miles later. Tomorrow, I'll give the mounts a good going over in the light.
The sound appears when the motor speed is lower than usuall while engaging the clutch. I can't re-create it without the motor running.....

Re: New motor & stange noise ??

Max, My clutch cable is less than a year old... I don't think it's related to the sound....
I'm glad your Grandfather is home. Good medicine!
