Re: WTF?! KNOCKING?!

k soo i just checked my oil and its good. my dad told me to grow some balls and turned it on so i listened to him and my pully is wobbling and hitting my block(like my drive pully if thats what its called). can i just tighten it or is it a different problem?

Re: WTF?! KNOCKING?!

hmmm maybe your tensioner is starting to go out. mine made a knocking sound when my tensioner failed. might be that but then again it would be better to put a sound clip

Re: WTF?! KNOCKING?!

Hmmm well I think I'm going to try tighting the pully first nd then ill try that. But gotta finish work first! I hope its nothing bad. Why would that pully come loose?

Rebuild it anyway man, Then since your pistons are still in good shape you can resell them.
