Probably the most important though, the flywheel was loose. All 8 ****in bolts. Going to have to figure that out but I'm very glad that the knocking sound is probably figured out. I was betting on this, but I was concerned about spun bearings.

On the hunt for a new ZF, going to pick up a set of Star Specs, and then ill get it all back together
Loose flywheel bolts could be either they weren't installed/TQ'd to the correct spec or driving around with a missing cyl(s) for long periods of time. Was the motor running fine or rough?
