I recently grabbed an 88 k1500 silverado $500 project. This guys wife
drove it across a parking lot and slammed it into a Dumpster (on
purpose), cuz he was talking with some Hotty's at a Wedding Reception,
she must be the jealous type. Anyway it crunched the front end in a
little. I replaced inner/fenders and radiator bracket, hood , grill
blah, blah blah. oh yeah, hit hard enough i had to straighten the
rightside frame out back about 1 foot. All square now though.
It has the 5.7 and the 700 4spd automatic with +- 120Kmiles on it.
Runs and drives good. Just started after driving on highway for 20 -
40 miles a knocking sound starts up only when in park or neutral. If
i pull her into reverse or a foward gear the sound goes away. Pretty
substancial knock too, I thought maybe a rod at first but since it
subsides when in gear I was thinking Flywheel Bolt? I came off the
highway pulled up to my buddies house, put it in park at idle speed
and all you can hear is , sha-bam sha-bam., sha-bam. Pull it back in
drive and nice and quiet.
Anyone seen or heard this b4?
