Most likely parts..
If it'* really a knock and the motor stalls w/o holding pedal down
Bearings
Does stall mean shut off or just run very shaky. The vehicle sounds of balance. and causing vibrations
My experience with bad/spun bearings is this. When it happens (bearing actually dies) the motor stalls. You think, this is not like my car and try to restart. It won't start w/o a little help by giving it some extra fuel. You hear a rythmic deep clunk in the motor and oil pressure is either very low or non existant.

It almost sounds like your car runs, but horribly and makes bad sounding noises. So far you haven't mentioned oil pressure. Once you begin to diagnose this, check out the harmonic balancer. While I've never seen one yet...willwrens description for a different post sounds similiar if you still have oil pressure and no holes in the motor. Hopefully you can come back to us with only a harmonic balancer.

Oil pressure was perfect throughout the whole time it was running. I had recently done a new oil sending unit so I know it is in good condition. Car will start on demand no extra fuel or need to revv. Engine sounds like timing is horribly off and rocks in a can. Car will hopefully looked at today after 4pm. Uncle finishes work at 4 and will have the flatbed available for pickup of the blue(white) bonny. The harmonic balancer as you mentioned above is exactly what I thought a mili-second after I heard it. Well wish me luck guys when I go to nip it in the butt.[/quote]

Rocks in a can was the term used to describe the engine in the 93 when it had a rob and/or bearing go. I am not sure which, cause I just had th engine pulled and a new one put in. Good luck with the car.

I don't think that will be the option with this one. Looked at car and very dissapointed :( It probably will go to crusher. If anyone wants a shell and tranny with 15K on it? PM me[/b]

Did you have the engine looked at? Might be worth doing. That, or if you do plan on getting rid of it, just throw it on ebay stating the facts, and that the buyer has to pick it up with some way to haul it. Start the bidding at $500 no reserve and you should be able to get some out of it. Judging from your sig pic, the car is in decent shape. (if it was a 92-95 shell I would have been all over it.)
