gutted....... I thought you had sneakily got away with it  :cry:

You gonna keep it running till it can run no more? buy another or do a swift bottom end rebuild?  8)

Technically its now knocking its fucking tits off.

I swear down its the box / clutch / flywheel tho. It really sounds like its coming from there ..

Sounds like something metallic sloshing around ...

The knocking is probably down to the low oil situation before mate..


I am with Brigsy on this matey, damage has already been done :(

The sound of oval crank journals, mangled bearings and a sump full of oil?

My engine is noisy, always has been. Sounds more 'top end' in my case though.

I can picture a bearing in lots of bits sloshing around.

Going to drop the oil , remove the sump and hope like hell nothing hasnt kaput.

I am not going to open up this engine till its got a replacement in the engine bay.

With the cost of repairs ( bearings etc ) its better to just bang another unit in there.

I am hoping to use a new style of VELCRO engine mount so when this one goes bang it will be less to unbolt ..

This is fun.

Been speaking to brigsy - could be a multitude of things. Going to whip out the engine and check flywheel is tight ..

I think its a flywheel bolt trying to make a bid for freedom ..

Have a listen. I can make it knock or not just about on demand.

Its at no1. end.

Andy, you will love the VNT once you have it setup to how you want it, boost like a T2 yet the pull of a T3 you will run out of rev's before the VNT stops pulling aswell even with a cam
