Re: Trico Windshield Wiper Motor Doesn't Oscillate

The Trico motor is a later style with the oval cap back. It was on my 1931 coupe when I bought the coupe in 1963. I tested the wiper motor by holding the motor in my hand and connecting the car's...

To all contributors: I have made an audio tape of the decelerating noises. However, I need very explicit directions on how to upload the file from my pictures and get the tape to you. I look...

Re: Loud Noise when car decellerates while i n first and second gears

rotorwrench: I like your analysis. It makes a great deal of sense. Now it remains to find out what is moving around more than it should. I removed all the gears, shafts, and roller bearings.;...

Woody: I don't think it's the flywheel because the car drives very well when not decelerating. Thanks.

Re: Loud Noise when car decellerates while i n first and second gears

Chris and Aaron: I'm going to try the keeping-the throw out bearing pressing on the pressure plate. Also, I neglected to say the engine has been rebuilt and has less than 100 miles on it.

Re: Loud Noise when car decellerates while i n first and second gears

Floats: I like your reasoning. Clearly, it's a situation of inertia of the car in opposition to the crankshaft with all its moving parts. But what is colliding to make the noise? How do I correct...
