The goal of the thread is to get back here on a Forest Service road in western Montana.

Wally, I'm looking at the Clark Fork from the State park in Thompson Falls. The sun's just gone behind the mountain. It's hot and I've got no fishing gear 'cause we're returning from a funeral in SLC. Took the scenic route home right past your place I'll bet.

I took a 170 C.I. flathead Studebaker engine apart years ago for a ticking noise. Turned out to be a piston pin coming loose because the nut on the retainer pin worked loose. The pin was hitting the piston making the tic and the wrist pin had slid sideways and was about to begin wearing a groove in the cylinder wall. I drilled and lock-wired all the nuts. I've never had that happen on a Stovebolt but since you've got the pan off look carefully up in there.

1-Ton, Yes, you overshot us. Are you in your '51 or another RV? Lower elevation up there = hotter.

I'll be looking up into the crank, etc as you suggest. Up there, though, is beyond my comfort level.

I'm embarrassed to say, my noise has been going on for a time. A video from 2018 has the noise as I took off. I always thought it was the water pump but no.

We're pulling an old Avion 30 footer with a not quite as old Suburban, not the 51. We have pulled it with the 51 but it's hard to carry on a conversation at hiway speed. We're home now and the 51 is waiting patiently for its next trip to Seattle. Its transmission was getting noisy so a couple of weeks ago i pulled it and replaced all the bearings and stuff with a kit from Novak in Logan Utah. it is a good kit. I got a whole set of better gears from a guy on Stove Bolt (thank you very much) and it's now much quieter.

I finally listened to your recording of the noise. It's not coming from a flathead, Stude-six piston; that I can say. But you've investigated all the things others have suggested that might make a noise like that so I'm at a loss too. Try pulling the front main bearing cap as Hot Rod suggested. It won't cost anything except maybe a skinned knuckle. They are tight. The condition of the bearing might reveal a lot. The upper shell of the no. 1 main will sometimes wear more than the bottom. It did on mine, I think because the 2 pulley shivs are driving a big fan, alternator, and A/C compressor. I think on the later engines the mains are not pinned to the block like earlier ones, which makes inspecting the upper half about four hours easier.

Lolol yea it does. I was following for a bit, but the conversation went to all kind of boring areas and 5 pages later. All i would like to know is, did the mysterious noise ever get discovered??
