And now back to your regularly scheduled Eurovan thread.
Haha.... we can talk Euro cars all day. I've been withholding my German car addiction in this thread. I've got a few hiding in the garage

Yeah. I've found that different forum followers tend to offer different input that I can often learn from. So it makes it worth while to cross post builds sometimes.

Well darn it! The van developed a knock today. No idea what it is yet. Abandoned it and need to get a trailer to go get it!

Why can't I ever do this crap when its 70* and sunny?

Of course the engine sounded fine when I pulled it on and off the trailer

I'll look at it later....after the snow storm!

(notice the flat trailer tire!......that was fun to fix in the snow too)

After you had the van loaded, naturally.

Well, the good news is that I distracted my wife with updating our magazine website long enough to get out and check out the van. (you can check that out if you like www.MotumMagazine.com)

That is about where the good news ends.

I fully molested the van with a stethoscope. Poked and prodded it in all sorts of inappropriate places and it sounds like its "probably" a rod knock. Is there, but too light to pinpoint exactly. So the next stage is to drop the pan and take a look. (Actually the next stage is still to fix the 951 so that I can work on the van inside.

Anyone have a good source for rod bearings if it happens to be that simple of a fix?

I think we all know it'll be more than just slapping some bearings in, but I like your optimism.

I've done a couple of Porsche motors that ended up just needing bearings, so I'm hoping for the best

Once I had a 12.5 KW Westerbeke generator that I was working on that had a horrible sounding knock coming from the engine. I was just starting to tell the owners of the boat how they should probably run into town and pick up the biggest portable generator they could find in order to save their vacation when I decided to pull off the plastic cover over the front of the engine. I was surprised to find that one of the belts had started to come apart and had a flap about 4 inches long flipping around and slapping on the brackets. I swear it sounded just like something was going to come out of the side of the block. New belt and all was good.

Maybe you have something similar or something is coming loose that you messed with when pulling the transmission to get to the timing chain?

Hopefully something easy!!

It looks like the pan is easy to pull from what I recall. Good luck!

Fwiw, here is a quick cell phone video. Just at idle since I didn't have an assistant.

You can also see how easy the oil pan access is compared to removing the intake/trans/ etc.
