Re: Any idea on what this knocking is 72 C20 350

Yup, an easy thing to check. I find it a bit hard to diagnose sounds from a recording. When my flex plate cracked, it made a very deep hard knock and I honestly thought it was a rod bearing about to let go. The OP's video just doesn't have that same sound to me, but I would not bet any money on it either way. It's just too hard for me to tell.
