Well, I made one final check to make sure everything was tightened up, got it off the jackstands and started it up and brought it out to the driveway. Let it warm up for a couple minutes and drove away. Didn't go far or fast, but I did a bunch of first gear starts and then complete stops, put it into neutral and then back into first and did it again a bunch of times. It didn't help... Grinding is still there.

So I resigned myself to pull the motor and started tonight. Got the IC off, electrical stuff disconnected and a few other things and will try to get it dropped tomorrow. I am not a happy camper.

Been fine now for past 2 years.

Interesting. I will definitely check that out. I didn't touch those bolts, but who knows if they are tight or installed correctly. Thanks for the idea.
