Frank C. Brants Posted February 13 Share Posted February 13 I just purchased (at an extraordinary price) a "rough" 1998 Signature, knowing that it needed a lot of work. The previous owner installed an ECU kill switch to prevent the ECU from draining the chassis batteries. I tried starting the engine (using the rear starter switch...) before I remembered the ECU kill switch, so I inadvertently had the opportunity to listen to the engine crank, but not fire. This revealed a very distinct knock that's not audible when the engine is running. I will mark the crank pully with paint to confirm the knock happens at the same point during the engine's rotation, but I'm preparing myself for an engine rebuild. So, can anybody recommend a really good engine rebuilder, preferably in Texas? Also, any shops to "avoid at all costs" would be tremendously helpful as well. If I'm going to rebuild an N14, I think I would rather pull the (now 25 year old) engine & do a complete rebuild. Thanks in advance!!
