Default engine noise

I have a clanking noise and have not been able to pinpoint where it's at, several guys in the model A club have tried to but to no avail.One thing that should help out is when ground out the second spark plug the noise seems to quiet down. Any suggestions where to look or what this could be? Thank you,

i think you may have found it #2 piston, wrist pin,rod, crank journal or babbit problem.
by stopping that cylinder from combusting the pressure on all mentioned components is reduced thus less noise..

Its always easier to work on an engine when its out of the car. especially if its a rod, wrist pin, or babbit problem. You can always just pull head and the pan to pull out a piston and rod, but its less work on you back if you just pull it out. It's not hard to pull, hell you could do it durring the commercial breaks on dancing with the stars . With an engine hoist, and all the tools needed, like some form of an engine puller, it shouldnt take more than 2 hours with the help of a friend. I counted the bolts one time, and i beleive its only like 24 bolts to take out. Thats including everything, but floorboards.

You realy dont need to pull the motor. If its somthing with cyleder two pull the head, pop off the Oil pan disconet the pistint arm from the crank and puch it up thou the top its probbily right were you pistint meats the arm in the wrist pin. Replace the pin and watever elce is worn on it and slide itback down (just dont replace the rings on the pistin other wise they will be uneven were causeing the engen to be out of balence
