350 Tranny noise, not sure what it is...

Hey Hot Rodders,, I have a question,, My car has a Tapping noise, when started. Now, I first thought it was engine related, but it is not. When I first start the car from being cold,, the noise does not appear. Once my car warms up, it starts tapping.. The wierd thing is when I shift from Park to Revers, the noise stops while between gears. Which If i shift slow, causing a Hesitation between the gears, the noise Stops. Once in Gear, Reverse, or Drive, the noise is there. I can drive, and move around but I have not driving the car in a few days. I am going to get the car on stands, and take the Cover off to expose my Fly wheel, I think there might be problems there.

Any help would be appreciated

Cool

pul the dust cover off. Check for loose converter bolts, check the end play of the crank shaft.


See how far the crank moves forward and backwards.


A cracked flywheel will make noise too. Difficult to see up in there to check for cracks around the crank shaft flange.

Check the convertor bolts and also the flywheel for cracks. Both will cause a ticking/knocking noise.

Sometimes you can check the flywheel by taking the convertor loose and pushing it away from the flywheel. Then tap the flywheel with a screwdriver or something similar. If it is cracked, it will rattle. If it isn't cracked, it should ring. Make sure that nothing is touching the flywheel when you hit it.

Thanks guys, I am going to check that Right Away!

Thanks to both of you Crosley and Adtkart, I appreciate the informaiton. I am hoping it is the Flywheel. It has brought to my attention, the day my brother in law and I put the Tranny in. We had one bolt missing from the Flywheel. He mentioned that I must replace that ASAP before putting too much mileage on the car. And sure enough, At the Mileage of 1,600, the car has this noise. I am going to check that on the car in a couple of days after the ground is solid, and let you know on this Thread what I found.

Thanks for the Advise, I am eager to check it now.

This site is Awesome!,,

Juice
