without tearing motor completely apart does anyone have a clue on this?
flywheel has teeth missing in only 1 spot.
I have taken tranny off and replaced.
but while tranny is off checked rotation and can only turn motor 3/4 of the way around and it freezes up-turn the other way and same thing. I get to that certain point and can't turn the motor
motor was running fine (no knocks or pings) thought it was touque converter at first but know it's not now.
I have to agree With Bill If you can rotate the engine by hand albit partial rotation I think you have a definate obstruction to rotation.....3/4 turn sure sounds like about 270 degrees of rotation...SOmething ugly is blocking the other 90 degrees.Good luck.
