Weird rattle from starter/transmission area

Iíve had them back out so far as to sound like a rod knocking away. I pulled the cover and they were out 2 turns. Locktight and plenty of torque and havenít had an issue

Re: Weird rattle from starter/transmission area

As this topic progresses, I'm uncertain about my cat rattle diagnosis, and think it might indeed be loose converter bolts.

I've ordered a set of the updated bolts, just in case. Looks like they have a broader head for more clamping area...?

Re: Weird rattle from starter/transmission area

I really think it was an issue with the LocTite they used and/or the torque spec.

If you tap hard enough or pound on the cat (that's what she said), and it makes noise then that helps narrow that down.

Glad its fixed. My rattle under there was the 4wd linkage which was cured with alot of spray lithium grease.
