Default Re: Knocking after installing new flywheel

My #2 suggestion, then, agrees with Tom Endy: flywheel bolt heads being clipped by the inner hub of the clutch disk.
I struck the ring gear about 100 times with a four pound hammer and jumbo punch (because of your earlier post from 2015). It never moved from the original measurement of 0.1400" from the edge. That measurement is uniform over all 360 degrees. So I'm hoping it's good.

I printed this document. I'll pull the bell housing and pressure plate tomorrow, and look for skinned heads on flywheel mounting bolts. I'm thinking you're right.

You guys are really great!
