I bet he won't find anything wrong with the oil. Nothing to back it up with, just a hunch after reading everything.

Drop the pan and look in there. When mine went we didn't find next to nothing in the oil all the junk stayed in the bottom of the pan.

The old oil was very dirty. Drained like gravy but it had no metal in it at all.

It seems to run better now but the rattle is there. No squeal. Just a rattle with increasing rpm. It sure sounds like it'* coming from the SC.

The guy I bought it from did not know about SC oil and he owned it for over 10 years. The original owner was an Insurance agent who never got his hands dirty.

You can rotate the SC pulley about 10 degrees before it catches the gears.....about 1/4" slop. Is that normal wear

Magnet didn't pick up anything and I held it under the oil as it was draining out.

I'd say take it very easy while you wait for the coupler and oil to arrive.

You'll have to pull the SC to do this one, Paul. It'* not a Series 2.

I am going to say this one last time... Either the Balancer is history, or a Rod bearing is almost gone...

Is the rubber on the balancer solid and intact, and can you turn the balancer easily by hand?There are stops on the back of the balancer, and when the rubber breaks and the front part of the balancer moves independently of the rear half, when this happens it will hit the stops and can mimmic a bad rod bearing..

In any event I wish you two the best of luck

Well, the harmonic balancer seems rock solid when I had the belts off. The rubber appears intact.

Bill, are couplers the same for Series 1 M62 and Series 2 M90. I have a spare and lots of oil. Just don't have the SC gasket.

I know what you mean though. Once the slop is taken up and the SC is spinning under load, then it shouldn't rattle.

I think it'* the worst. :( A Rod bearing............just refuse to accept it



I may be using that new engine stand and puller sooner than I thought.

well being that you have a Balancer that is solid and intact... Its most definitely a rod bearing... ... Also its not a 0 deck motor either... The piston crown actually sits a hair above the top of the block... Very much Play will result in a piston kissing the head.. Still a shame tho
