Help with engine noise

725 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DKJones96
I have recently bought a 84 that had the motor torn apart. The guy said that he blew the head gasket and didnt want to deal with repairing it. So i put it back together and started it up. The first time I did it ran really nicley, except for the #6 injector leaking like a wicker bed pan. after I fixed the problem I started it back up and now it had a bone crushing knock in it. It is an inconsistant knock, and the more the car ran, the more the knock went away. I had a friend help me do this and I am thinking that he may have droped something in one of the cylenders. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what it could be? Thanks

Pull the plugs and see if anything looks abnormal.

Your Lifters will take a bit to get primed but it should not be a bone crushing knock. More like a concerning ticking.

More than likely he spun a bearing.
ahh @#$ i was afraid someone would say that. I was maybe thinking that, but I think I was in denial. Oh well, I havent started it as of reacently, but If the knocking is still diminishing, then I'm hoping for something dropped into the intake. I dont really want to pull the engine, but it does have quite a few miles on it. May as well replace the motor and then maybe when i get a new motor I'll add a turbo. Thanks
how do you spin a bearing? what happens when that happens?
