  • Engine: engine knock?

    I recently took my 58 hawk to mechanic i had never used before to fix oil leaks -rear main rocker arm cover ect, While there he pointed out to me that two bolts were missing and one was loose connecting bell housing to the engine. When I picked the car up he had replaced missing bolts and tightened the others. When i started the car i heard a loud knocking noise that was not there before. However after driving the car a short distance the knock went away. If the car sits for a while the noise comes back ,and again after driving and warming up goes away. It is a 289 with automatic trans,any ideas?

      Did you not notice the, " loud knocking" when you picked up the car? Regardless, I'd take it right back to the guy.
