Re: [T3] Noise, pulley etc

It reminded me of the little clamp that holds the accelerator cable. It was
round with a hole through it and a slot on one end. Didn't really look at it
very closely, but I kept it so I can take a photo of it tomorrow if you
like. Could it have fallen off from somewhere inside the fan housing?

I still doubt this was what was maknig the noise; the noise decreased as rpm
rose. If this was being thrown about that wouldn't happen, IMHO.

I've only just moved in here. My neighbours probably think I'm a bit weird
when they see me under the car. I think I'll pass on running the engine
without the muffler. I'll just carry on taking it apart and see what there
is to see.
