    Took the day off from working on the car yesterday for a very special reason.
    My oldest daughter got married (second go around).

    You plan to autocross this thing this year? I hope so with the work you've done.

    It seems that noise in the NEW engine is a rod knock on #3.
    Not driving it to SDAC.......

    Man, that stinks. No time to pull the block and check what it is? Possibly put the old block back in?

    I will re-word that for you.

    That raffle engine is in that wagon.

    Can't drop the pan and put a bearing on it? If it's not a bad knock yet it may be okay.

    In my experience that is usually a waste of time, I have yet to successfully have it work on these engines as the factory bearings are pretty hard. By the time you hear the noise damage has been done to the crank.


    It is time, buckle up.

    Same here, but I have caught them before they did damage, on a 2.2 I rebuilt. After about 2 years I could barely hear them tap on start up, swapped them out and was good to go. That is a rare occasion though, and wasn't very audible knock unless you were listening for it.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Talked to the only good machine shop today. Going to take the original GTP engine in and have it bored for 20 over forged pistons.
    And have things balanced. Then will swap out the other engine and try to find out what the issue is.

    He said he wants to hear the engine that is in there now. So will take in in there tomorrow before noon.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    So I don't need to pull it off one engine to put on another. Two complete engines that way.

    If anyone that has one has the aluminum piece behind it, that would be good to get both.
