Just to be sure... I'm NOT going to need a new gasket or seal(s) here? They are 7500 miles old. I can get new ones, but it will take me a few days, and I need to know if I have a few days or if I can pull this to inspect, then put it back on.


EDIT.... Never mind.... silly me, I don't even have any way of holding the crankshaft still while undoing the bolt. Abort.

Simply put a breaker bar on the nut that will reach the frame. Turn the engine so the bar is as close to the frame as possible and then bump your starter. Breaks em loose every time.

Yeah, I finally figured that one out. Of course for some reason the starter stuck, and even when I pulled the key out, it kept cranking the truck. Got away with it with no damage this time, but I have never had anything like that happen before. ...Yet another thing to have to fix... (Ignition, starter, and wiring are all new.)

I have just confirmed that the timing is correct. The belt is nice and tight, no frays, no damage, nothing looks out of ordinary in there. So I'm no closer to getting this solved. I'll try to get around to pulling the pan tomorrow, unless anyone has any better ideas.

You may be all set for buttoning the timing cover back up, but I've got the tool to hold the crank while torquing that damper bolt (I'm in Sellwood and your welcome to borrow it). Also have a compression tester with adapter--if different than yours might allow you to check that last cylinder. PM me if you want to borrow tools.

I hate to think what it would be like to drive from Boring to Sellwood with all the road closures and 90 degree heat in a Series! I rode in a Series on the Dunes in Dubai at 112 degrees last week, and I really think the trans-Portland trip would be worse. But thank you for the offer! I might take you up on the extension for my compression tester, but it can wait. I'm buttoning up the cover this morning, and I think I'll be able to get the main bolt tight enough.

Unsure if I'll have the time to pull the pan today, but I'm going to go ahead and get the oil and be ready to do so.

OK, I'm done chasing this demon for now. I'm going to have to wait till something breaks to figure out what is breaking.

But after all the opening and shutting and analysis and listening and all that, I think I may go back to my initial thoughts on this issue from over a year ago, when I was first driving the truck daily.

On any given day it would run rough and loud, but it was inconsistent. In my pea-brain, I figured this must have something to do with fueling. So I experimented with different fuels and additives, and it seemed to respond a bit. Then I swapped injectors, and that really seemed to smooth it out. I even retarded the timing on the IP to get rid of the white smoke that was plaguing my neighbors. But this knock/ring noise persisted. At first, I think it was also inconsistent. But in reality, I've sort of lost track of one thing leading to the other.

All of this to say that I'm coming back to the thought that this might be some kind of pre-ignition, latent, retarded, advanced knock that is being caused by an IP pump. A few people mentioned something along these lines, so I held onto the thought, and am now coming full circle.

I reset my IP timing, and although the knock is still there, I find myself driving, stopping, driving, and later realizing that I wasn't bothered by the sound while sitting at a light! This really is new, and it tells me something about how much it has diminished.

So I think I will run it as is for a bit, monitor the knock, then see about getting the IP serviced. If that doesn't fix it, I know for sure I'm in for some kind of break down the road. But.... whatever.

Wheno gone, fuel pump causes funny noises (clicking) on fuel lines or IP. Cheap to try.

Cheers
