    There were two bolts on the crank pull broken dont know about the internials I have not had time to tear in to it just yet. plan on doing some Friday if I get off work early and hopefully the rest Sunday. We also think there is some thing wrong with the converter there is a patteren of the bolts that hold the flywheel on in it.

    That means there is not/was not enough stal built into it. You need a larger converter/higher stall and better at that.

    Is the balancer broken? That COULD be the source of the knock.

    No the balancer was not broke it is a BHJ that doesnt even have 5000 miles on it. What was broken was two of the bolts that bolt the pully to the balancer. As for the conventer it is factory as far as I know.

    The converter baloons when it gets hot and is overworked. SO, think about an additonal cooler AND filter to help keep the longevity of the tranny AND the aftermarket converter that you are apparently going to get.

    I can see it... Jim will post a thread in a few weeks "And then there was four..." (or whatever he's up to)

    If it was running and reliable, I'd consider it. I wouldn't mind something other than my Explorer for a daily. But I don't have room for a project. I technically already have one in line for a project as it stands. Good luck with the sale!

    Still wishing I could have come down for the black interior.
