    I just put in a new ricky stator and did the loctite fixes on that side about a week ago. So when I noticed this rattle I opened it up this morning to inspect it. All the bolts are secure, no sign of damage. Double checked to make sure I have all shims and bushings in correct spots.

    I did notice that the gear that sits behind the flywheel, I believe it's #8 in the starter clutch fiche, has play in it - meaning it is not snug to the shaft but rocks slightly back and forth. Is this normal?

    it only rattles at a certain rpm. Any idea what is causing this?
