Re: Need ideas on weird noise

I hadn't checked the pinch bolt on the aluminum pulley but it was tight and no movement from the pulley, Thanks for the idea it did seem to make the most sense. With a stethoscope there is no noise coming from the timing cover, only from the water outlet.

I don't know what happened to the post that described the noise but it is more of a valve tick than a rod knock noise, it changes with rpm and makes it hot or cold, it changes speed but not intensity.

Rear diff roller thrust bearings.

The other day I had a young fellow near me ask what I knew about the rear diff roller thrust bearing and I hadn't even heard about them, I checked and Snyder's has them but I still know nothing. Does anyone have any experience with or know about these? Thanks, Dennis

Re: question about exhaust/intake manifold stud bolt material ???

If you flip your manifold clamps over you won't need such long studs and you might find long enough studs.

Re: Driving back roads in southern Utah

Jed Smith Park was the last time on the trip that we would have the cars off of the trailers. From there we went toward home and could have made it all the way home that day but something said take your time to us. We went past the road to Crater Lake but since we have been there on T trips in the p...

Re: Driving back roads in southern Utah

While we were asleep the power was shut off for what turned out to be days. From The Avenue of the Giants we went north up the coast and stayed at the Elk Prarie state park thankfully they were open with no power, just about everything was shut down, luckily we didn't need fuel at that point. We wen...
