Amanco knocking

Post by spit-bang on Sat Apr 05 2014, 16:39

when running my amanco hired man, there is a soft knocking sort of noise from the piston as it is going in and out of the bore, it is not a metallic knock. hard to describe really, is this normal? everything seems tight so i dont think its wear. any help appreciated cheers

hi neil
when i come to deliver your engine i will have a look at amanco for you ,as i know my way around them these days as having a couple myself
and it can be one of several little tweeks if its not the conrod & piston ,but at the same time it could be ,depends how the castings are sending the sound out when running mate

Hi Neil, If you are still worried about the "knock" give us a ring and I`ll come round one night, it might not be the little end. two or three set of ears might help. Can`t come round this week I`m getting ready for Anglesey and I have the builders in.
regards tony
