Default Re: Knocking after installing new flywheel

If you had a reproduction flywheel starter ring gear installed this may be a problem for you. I have seen several that would not stay in place. They tend to walk forward. It would have been better if Henry had put the stop on the other side. Each time the starter engages it wants to pull the ring forward away from the stop. I had one that kept walking off, no matter how many times I hammered it back into place through the starter mounting boss. I final pulled the flywheel and had the ring pinned in place. I also discovered that the shop that had installed the ring had put in on backwards.

The attached article tells the story.
