Re: LOUD KNOCKING FROM REAR

More so when under power but when coasting with clutch engaged it is still there as soon as clutch is disengaged and not in gear no noise.
It's not a daily drive but driven at least twice a week to keep things moving.

Re: engine rebuild trouble

Hi I have just replaced water jacket seals on my 85 1.9 dg and found cylinders 3&4 had no compression and was only firing on 1&2 went through everything until I noticed the pushrods were not seated correctly and holding the valves open sorted them and she fired right up. Might be worth a look.
