CIH flywheel cover plate

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I eventually got my GTE to run after being apart for the last couple of years but it sounds like someone throwing a bag of spanners down the stairs.

I suspect it's the flywhell skiffing off the rear lower cover plate, mine was pretty beat up and I straightened it as best as could but tbh I was being a little optimistic that it wouldn't interfere. Gonna pull the engine out again, one step forward ten steps back but I'm cool, I was really struggling to get it to run so was pleased when it started, aside from the awful noise it idles real solid. I bought the engine years ago, was the first time I've seen it run.

Anyone got a straight rear cover plate or know where I can get one?

I'm a long-time lurker here, learnt an awful lot 🙂

Thanks,

Scott

Thanks evo,

I'm gonna pull it all anyway, my plan is to run the engine with no gearbox / plate, confirm the noise is gone, try to fix the plate without the gearbox and if i can get it to clear then add the gearbox. bit of a chore but there's some stuff i'd like to tidy with the engine out e.g. i did the brake pipes after i fitted the engine, they're not very well formed 😞
