May be sooner than we think!!!!
That should be easy enough to diagnose with a section of rubber hose and an assistant to slowly bring up the RPM's. I suppose weak springs could cause float at the higher RPM's where these engine seem to like to make the clatter.I have been a diesel mechanic since 1982 worked on heavy equipment in USMC and post. Has me fooled, my philosophy is, if it aint broke dont fix it! But this does drive me nuts!!!! I still think its in the valves.
Again - it's a normal sound on this type of engine. Quit "looking for problems" Worst case scenario is usually a loose nut behind the wheelI have a stage one tuning done by hardcoretuning.com with the boost valve. The first thing is temp, if the engine is cold it is much louder. For me, it seems more related to throttle position. Under full throttle it is there in pretty much all gears, but if I don't floor it or back off the throttle the sound goes away. Some smoked salmon to the first person to come up with a workable solution!
Hmmm.... looks like I hit a nerve. Caps, multi exclamation points - the works. Point is, for those not used to being around diesel engines the noise, clatter or however you want to describe it is normal. Remember this engine is derived from an industrial tractor design, not a modern passenger car. Also noises of all sorts are amplified in an open air vehicle as compared to an enclosed vehicle with all sorts of sound insulation. BTW It's not that I don't like the issue (I assume you meant topic) - just find it interesting that so many owners are trying to come up with a fix to a "problem" that does not really exist.WOW!!!!! I think I will try to tighten that loose nut behind the wheel. That should resolve the issue with my clatter also, that may or may not be NORMAL!!!! Sounds like he is a pro and he sounds normal too!!! Keep on a rollin and a clattering!!! Issue resolved send him some salmon. If you dont like the issue or want to discuss it then log off!
