I have a creaking or popping sound when I take off. I can't figure it out. It didn't do it with the 383. Happens during normal take-offs, not a hard launch. The clutch is the same one I had with the 383, maybe 1500 miles on it. Any ideas?
Yes. It seems to be fine. I replaced both sides when I put it back together this time. Sounds more like it is coming from the passenger side front. I'm still checking stuff.Where does the sound seem to come from or can you tell. Did you check the clutch pedal bushing where the z bar is. Just a thought.
Yeah. These cars are 55 years old now. Rattles and creeks are part of life.That is odd. Had my front grill screw's get loose and was hearing a rattle noise. Think it could be a fender bolt or loose k member bolt or something like that. Have you checked the upper control arm bolts. Thinking out of the box. Wish you luck Terry. I have a taping noise while driving down my driveway and found to be the exhaust pipe hitting my torsion bar. This stared after running over part of a semi recap across my lane. So, when doing the new head gaskets will address that problem also. May be new exhaust pipes are in order like stainless steel ones.
Thanks. I will do that.Something to remember about the lower control arm bushings. When changing them out if you use the original rubber style which I prefer leave the pivot nut loose until the ride height is established. Car completely assembled torsion bars adjusted (I let my alignment guy do that to factory specs) then tighten them. If you do them early say the front end in the air or no engine weight you set the steel sleave of the bushing onto the pivot and as you lower the car it starts to tear the rubber bushing. You will notice the car will sag and you have to keep adjusting the torsion bars, thats the rubber in the bushing tearing and you will need new ones. They are designed to move a little as the suspension works.
