It's off, as is the pulley housing. It didn't rain this afternoon so I took
advantage of the dry floor. There was a washer and some kind of small
fastener in the bottom of the housing. If this is the reason for the noise
then I have done a lot of unnecessary work, but I doubt it. One thing I
noticed is that one of the heat exchangers is able to swivel on its thread.
I am pretty sure I tightened it up properly when I installed the muffler (I
had a special wrench made) and so hopefully I just knocked it loose as I
wrestled the muffler out of the car.

Done. As I have it off I want to clean it up and make the timing hole round
again. Anyone have any tips as to how to do this?

This will have to wait till tomorrow. I know I will have to lock the engine
to tighten the bolt, but the less times the better.

Game on!
