Knocking Low Rpm. Worse Up Hills.

29 June 2014 - 06:55 AM

i have a knocking noise. Sounds very engine related.. Sounds top left of engine bay (by diesal filter)

My Cambelt snapped few months ago. I cant remember if i had this problem before or after it went.

i had few sightly bent valves.

The engine never stalled when cambelt went. (i pulled over and turned engine off and restarted then it snapped before restarting (200-250rpm)

It was a complete head rebuild. New seals, New valves ect.

There was 2 very tiny marks on piston, That i sanded smooth with 800 Grit sandpaper (Very fine marks). There was no movment in pistons and piston walls looked great for 140,000 Diesal miles.

I'v replaced Both bottom arms.

Could a Top mount make this noise??

maybe engine mounts??

Is it normal process to cut tho whole panel out and replace it. or just overlap the panel and use seam sealer to not allow water.

Cause if i cut the whole panel out. i can image it will be hard to seam weld it to a water tight level.

St170 Turbo Question's For My Mk4 Escort Project.

what inlet manifold and Turbo Exhuast manifold can i use for a ST170 on a RS Gearbox.

Do i need a new Gearbox (Rear mounted starter on gearbox) ?

Do i need to scrap the ST170 inlet Manifold because of the Runner control system (i have no unit to control it) ?

Best to delete the VVT now im going to turbo ?
