Question about 1982 Ford F 150
When i start the truck i hear like a clanking or a pinging, almost like the starter gear is grinding or somethen againts the flywheel, or maybe the torque converter is loose, i dont know. it does start and run though. also i did a compression check on just one cylinder but it was about 105 psi. and the truck doesnt want to idle below 1000 rpm, does this mean theres not enough compression? should we rebuild the bottom end?
Check that all the teeth are ok on the flywheel, if you have missing teeth that will cause the noise you are talking about
