Hi All,

I have a 1989 1700Z Trojan Loader with a 5FL914 with a rod knock. Loader has good power. When initially started, there is no knock. Seems as that as the oil warms up, the knock starts and the knock becomes worse. I had the injectors rebuilt because I felt as though the engine was not running smoothly. One was stuck open.

Decided to pull the engine. Have an issue getting the engine separated from the ZF transmission. Access cover on left side is off and there is a chassis frame post 2" away from the opening and can barely get my hand in to touch the bolts let alone get a wrench on it. Doesn't have any other opening for access. Pulling the transmission with the engine is a real bear because of the tight work space.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
