    Yup, engine movement and third gear difficulties under heavy load. Diff knocks on the subframe on/off throttle.

    I don’t envy your job with that trans. That’s why I prefer to pull the motor with the trans attached when possible. It seems like extra work/expense but makes doing a clutch easier and less chance to mess up.

    Been messing with the megasquirt a bit more, was able to actually ENJOY driving the car all day Saturday to a car show with some friends in Hershey Pa at the AACA museum

    huh...I wonder if that's the sound I'm hearing with any shift in acceleration. But it also happens on braking. I thought it was the alignment bolts coming loose (they don't anymore). And now I think it's the RUCA bushing - since it's slipped such that the bushing lip that's supposed to be between the RUCA and frame, isn't there any more. But maybe it's...both? Any recommendation on how to check if the diff mounts are shot?

    At this point, it's deductive reasoning. Our cars are 19 years old, mine started developing the knock on the right, now the left. If it is the RUCA, you should be able to replicate it or see signs of contact on the subframe or knuckel. Maybe put the rear in the air on stands and see if unloading the suspension does anything. I put mine up, tried to replicate the noise by spinning the wheels back and forth by hand, nada. Additionally, some research shows the diff mounts are likely the culprit. If it isn't I will have at least stabilized the PPF assembly and can pinpoint form there.

    I suspect the diff lash, driveshaft, and axle, too.

    The next few days will be filled up with drilling and cutting and bolting...

    Yes, I'm keeping it white. Complete color changes never turn out good, imo, unless you spend really big bucks on them. I will be adding another stripe to the car, different from the offset rally strip that I just removed.

    New wheels and tires will be forthcoming, as soon as finances allow. Most likely, I'll be going with a set of Advanti Storm S1 15x8s in bronze.

    Will agree on complete colour changes...unless they are really complete (engine bay, interior etc) in which case they cost more than double.
