It was coming from under near the tranny, and was just a slight rattle only in gear. Thought is was the cat heat shield. It has grown to all the time now but coming from tranny pan area.

Pulled the inspection cover on the tranny and all the bolts are tight. Noise is still a rattle, not clunking or slapping like a rod. Good oil pressure, no CEL and runs smooth.

if you can get the dust cover off the flywheel, get in there and look for little rust lines radiating out from the center. common issue for "rattling in gear" is a cracked flywheel. i guess it's a known issue on these per my transmission buddy. Donny at Wilson's Trans & 4x4 in Porterville.

I got the dust cover off but you can barely see the bolts much less the center. It is about 2 inch dia.

That sounds plausible though with the noise as it does not sound like the engine. I will dig a little deeper as a flywheel is better than a motor and it does need a rear seal.

Traded in my 245 for 265s but lowered the profile to keep the same height.

The noise comes and goes, strange. Still have to do the pitman arm. Problem on this is the box must be pulled to do it and the weather has said no! Looks like we have a good week or so coming up so I will get it on. Finish the paver patio I started last fall and put a solar system up to augment what I have now.

The hitch in all this is my 1st surgery is scheduled for March 4th. Then nothing big goes until I am up from that. I can see lots of cleaning up in those 6+ weeks.

Got the front end done. Hopefully I don't need new upper offset bushings. Had some bad camber and I adjusted it some but the alignment will tell the story.

Bump stops were in bad shape, well no shape really. Also have to trim the front wheel wells as the 265s rub a little.

Put a tach bezel in, just plug and play (if you get the right year) and it works great. Had another 3k miles on it from LKQ but that is minor. I will be adding remote locks later. Need new plastic bumper trim too, 1 is pushed in and the other has a hole in it.

Little more cleaning to get the smoking smell out and it looks like the flexplate is gone too. Made rear shackles giving it about an inch of lift to match cranking up the TB about 3 turns.

I need to find out quick as I get cut in a few weeks and need it. Plus I am finishing up a paver patio and doing a 4000watt solar system all before!

Kids are off next week and they are still young enough I have to keep em busy. Lets work on the house during the day and vehicles at night. Wouldn't mind getting sparty running too so I don't have 2 dead subs in the driveway!

my experience from having an ankle reconstructed, its really not that bad and you will be surprised at what you can and cannot do with a cast on.  hell, I fenced half of my yard with the cast and crutches, but then again I also had this

and the half leg boot wrap

hit your insurance company up and make them give you one of these! this will truly be a life saver and you will be able to feel it thru the plaster and fiberglass cast.

Kaiser is fairly good on giving stuff.

They are removing a few chips and re-attaching tendons tore loose from the ankle I assume with screws. (just what I need is to beep) I don't understand the 6 week off the leg as I have heard and seen just 2-3 weeks.

Anyway I do not plan on just laying around. I have plenty to do that does not involve heavy objects (besides me).

Probably due to age and circulation there JR, tendon attachment is "iffy" on good candidates, and the percentages decrease with age.   :(.

Blazer is running fine but the rattle is still there. Took it to a trans shop I trust and they believe it is the flexplate too.

Long story short I am dropping the coin to have them do it. I trust them and they let me buy the parts (rear main and flexplate was under $60)

I am now getting a grown from under the front end (neither this or the SP was an issue when I purchased). Seems to happen when cruising at highway speeds and coming from the right front. All new parts but the driveline and you can hear it ratchet down when you stop. I am thinking the axle disconnect but having them check that too.

Off to finish the patio!

Got it back today and the FP was cracked all around. Found the starter was bad so he did that also only charging me dealer for the starter ($110)

Seems to run well but still have the hum up front that I have tracked down to the axle disconnect. It uses vacuum via the trans case and switching on/off fixed the noise temp.

Now on the way home the CEL came on. My deal truck has lost its appeal.

you're dealing w/ all the BS the previous owner didn't want to deal with. you're too deep now to back out, so go on full plow. CEL is probably something emissions related now that you've got it up and running for the most part. considering your 4wd disconnect issues, I'm betting vacuum leak which will trip evap codes. glad to hear the flex plate was the simple solution.

It passed all but Nox when I tried to smog before. Done a complete tuneup since then and drove it for a full tank and just today the CEL came on running the kids around.

One day to go and still have about 1/5 of the patio to finish. If the rain holds for tomorrow I am good. (little rain tonight, none tomorrow and then 3-4 more says the weather man who is always right!)

Yup, not giving up at all now. Need to make it the best I can. (I just found an 93 Cherokee a guy is almost giving away!) Must not be tempted, must not!!!

That CEL thing, you mean it's not supposed to be on? Our S10 has pretty orange blinking lights all over the dash and has for many years. I never worry about it, since when driving it your far too busy trying to steer the thing in some semblance of a straight line. Did you know IFS stands for "Impressively Freakish Steering"

As for the weather.... it's suppose to be nice this weekend. But I spent too long on my feet at the auction yesterday, so I have planned an entire weekend of sitting in the lawn chair watching Kay do something productive.

Lots of name for the IFS, they all fit. At least mine is new.

As for sitting around and watching Kay, that sounds great.

I have moved so many bricks, crawled around and cut bricks my whole body hurts. The ankle surgery tomorrow will be a vacation.

Now that I am moving some I did a little on the Blazer. I need to flip this now, just to small and it did what I needed for a month or so.

The cat rattles like HELP and it shows a CEL 420, bank 1, cat efficiency below threshold, so I pulled it and got a new Walker bolt in.

The center console was broken, so pulled that out and both seat recline handles were gone.

Did an RnR on the console cover. They sell a plate that fixes it. First I filled the entire base with a think epoxy, flared the edges and screwed-riveted it in. After drying a couple days.

Then I pulled the cat and boy did I find a rattle!!! I have heard of but never seen one this bad. It was a pile melted material and most fell out of the inlet. I would guess the 02 is OK as it was saying it was bad,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The new one is a Walker bolt in with a rebate to boot. Getting a Carb legal cat can be a pricey chore but this was just $150 shipped with a $30 rebate. Plus no messing with welding and fitting.

Next come this little vacuum switch. Mounts on top of the transfer case and sends vacuum to another actuator under the battery that locks the front axle (simple GM, right) The transfer case is actually switched via a dash switch for actuator on the transfer.

What has been happening is when I cruise the front end was trying to engauge and I had to cycle the 4x4 button as I drove. Simple temp fix was I cut and plugged the line until I can replace the $15 switch.

That cat looks like what we used to do to em back in the day. Take em off use a rose bud & heat the internals cherry then stand the cat on end & drive guts out with a solid round bar into a bucket. Finally weld the shell back in place and it always had a better sound & fuel mileage/ power......

If you look earlier in the thread you can see the muffler was blown out good. At least this uses 3 bolt flanges on each end. I spent more time getting it off than unbolting it as there was a xmember there.

Cat all finished up, no more codes or rattle. Kept the old 02 sensor so saved a few $$ there.

Switch was just $13 with discount. Bad it was as the ball should be OUT. It is located above the front driveshaft where size 10 hand might fit, mine is well bigger than that.

Detail and a couple of seat release levers and away it goes!!

Yep. I will loose some on this but want the most I can get without going nuts. Its actually pretty clean inside, almost no smoking smell left. Fabreeze and LOTS of freah air going through it. Now the 4x4 works as it should and it will pass smog. The new tires and wheels along with a rebuilt front end should help it sell fast.

I thought about it but we are talking 3-5 years. Here in Ca you get a CDL at 16 if you pay up the wazoo for lessons. No drivers ED anymore so most wait until they are 18 now. 

Insurance is high here too for what I have and I need to cut the fleet down for parking and $$$ flow.

Put them up for sale in the "For Sale" section with pics. Let's see if that thing works!

I'm thinking that XR600 is a sure sell to a survivalist somewhere

The 600 needs some work but it runs and I have all the parts, street legal too. Just want something ready to ride.

Blazer, obvious.

Sami should go fine. They are in demand and getting harder to find. Lots of stuff, new motor, tires wheels, 3 t cases iwth low gear kits, extra axles with lockers.

Sub is the 1500 (Spartan is the 2500) with just 85k miles. Great condition cept paint getting setup with a 3/4 rear, new tires wheels lifted 4 inches.

Ya know JR, I'm not so sure I shouldn't own that burb...

It, along with a old crew cab  dodge or chevy 3/4 ton are my absolute favorites.

But I own a crew cab chev already...and I don't have a burb...

Now that would be a road trip! I need to get it running (darn alarm wiring) and fix the very common roof rust. Still a small project to get to, finishing the patio today!

Those sami's have a cult following, selling shouldn't be an issue.

98 Blazer and 91 Suburban (not Spartan). Maybe the XR600 and the Samurai. I just have to many projects and need to thin em out and improve cash flow.

Put them up for sale in the "For Sale" section with pics. Let's see if that thing works!

I'm thinking that XR600 is a sure sell to a survivalist somewhere

Suzi...Not so much, could be wrong

Burb...Hmmm, burb...hmmm...cummins burb...
