Chet- I'll look thru my Dykes engine info - I think the min and max side clearances for the rods is stated there.  Will let u know if I find it

Thanks for the input, When I pull the engine I'll check.  But ! There shouldn't be any wear the crank was machined and the engine has less then 5 minutes run time.

Chet- don't believe that incident caused your problems .  That engine has 3 main bearings and the crank is strong enough to withstand what happened.  Rods are supposedly interchangeable from journal to journal so that shouldn't cause your knock either.  You just have to determine where the wear is and then go from there - good luck

I have a great deal of confidence in the builder.  I should have never run the engine with the pressure plate in place.  My mistake.  The centrifugal force probably allow the arms to open slightly and grab the throw out bearing shaft.  After that.., it's history.  I couldn't blame the motor rebuilder for that.   

Stuff happens, now we have to focus on correcting the problem.  Chet...

Chet - shims will not take care of sideplay in the rod -either the crank journal or rod is worn - sorry to tell u that but tha'ts the way it is .  If u have a micrometer you can check the outside width of the #1 rod journal (big end of rod)  and compare to the noisy ones for an answer.  Shims only set oil clearance between rod and crank.  Good luck and keep us posted.  Sounds to me as if your engine builder has a problem on his hands.
