well after taking my car into my teacher at school a few times, he took one look at the flywheel and said it looked too close to the block, and you could see scraping from whenever it did, however there was no end play on either side of the crank..... and i had never touched the flywheel bolts anytime i've had the car so i assumed it was stock.
well nothing else i could think of to test before dropping the trans, not to mention all the symptoms are that of a wacky crank trigger voltage.....
finished pulling the trans this morning, looked the the flywheel and everything looked ok, so i decided to pull of the backing plate and bolts, and the center of the flywheel has completely shifted
this would cause the crank to be at TDC yet the crank sensor would'nt get the TDC signal till later, im surprised this thing ran as good as it did..... lucky for me i already have an additional flywheel from a 95 engine that im rebuilding at school as well.
now from what ive seen in the FSM the correct order from the crank is Flywheel, backing plate, bolts? that is also the order it was taken out in, but for some reason i cant help but think that backing plate is spost to act as a spacer between crank and flywheel and thats why it was causing it to rub?........ or do you guys think that the flywheel was rubbing the block due to the warped center?
