Overhauled Engine Noise

I have just finished a complete overhaul of the fuel injected 1.8 liter engine from my 1974 914. I reused the pistons, honed the cylinders, and installed all new rings, bearings, gaskets, and seals. All fits and clearances are within factory limits. The engine is reinstalled and I have set the dwell, timing, and valve clearances. It is running very well except for one thing.

I now have clatter (or a slight mechanical rattle) that ONLY occurs between 2000 and 3000 R.P.M. during deceleration. If I apply any amount of throttle the noise goes away. I have combed the entire engine compartment and undercarriage for sources. Other than the torsion bars for the engine lid and rear trunk lid, which now have rubber hose insulators installed, I can not find anything else moving or hitting other parts.

If anyone has a suggestion I would be very grateful.

I have a similar noise at similar times in my 2.0. Some people tell me it might be a wrist pin others the windage tray due to the gasket being old.

Roger,
Is the windage tray the metal plate inside the engine case that keeps the oil from being mixed up by the crankshaft? If so, I just replaced those edge seals during the rebuild.
I also just checked the wrist pin clearances.
Thanks for your reply, anyway.

Andrew

You might have a loose bolt or nut on the exhaust system.

I have found this to be wrist pin. Usually not a problem and can go on for years

Did you have the case/heads thoroughly checked by a machine shop before rebuild? Are the main bearings still standard? How many miles did it have on it total before this rebuild?

As you can see, I have tons of question...
