    its either that theres enough play in the rods that it still may be tapping the block. Thats all i got.

    If your hearing a knocking you could have spun a crank bearing.. How did this knock come about?

    sound like its coming from the head. on cylinder #4. Got some rod call Star from tunertoys its a copy of eagle rod. They say that you have to notch it so that it can fit. Got it notch. Thought they make after market rod thats oem size. to just fit in.
    sound its a rod knocking noise but some reason it sound is coming more from the head. i use a long flat head to point it and listen to it.

    i got a tdc marker that measure and tell me when its on tdc. i think its the rod and the build it self. my cousin probbly brought the wrong rod. cuz they say with these rod u have to notch the build so it have room to clear when it rotate.

    If its a spun rod bearing it probably wouldn't do it on idle right away either. Just when you let off the throttle and it will be a "double" knock. Atleast that's what mine was like.
