Hope someone understands this. From the top, I put a 302 out of a mustang in my 1994 F-150 and all is working well. Only thing that never got hooked up was the knock sensor, I just placed the sensor in the harness and taped it to something. This noise is recent, on start up it seems to knock until the idle stabilizes. That is the only time it happens!!

Hope somebody can chime in here as I have never heard this before.

Here is basic explanation:
Your Engine Knock Sensor enables your vehicle to obtain the optimum combination of timing and fuel/air mixture to generate power and efficiency and that means less wasted gas.
Also Knock Sensor keeps fuel from detonating in the cylinder … exploding rather than quickly burning as it should. If not replaced a faulty Knock Sensor can quite literally cause hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage.
So get it back on the engine

If this is what needs to be done, I would have to drill and tap the engine block to suit. This is the cure? How does a mustang(the year block I have anyway) go without?

Now we are missing Jim, he just worked out the kinks on his before he disappeared.

He used the A9L, with a modded chip.

Did a oil change and flushed the system with a engine flush treatment, put in new 10w30 oil along with a jug of Lucas. And to my suprise the noise is completely gone!! I still can't believe it.

Lets see how long it lasts for.

Mileage was approx. 6000 km's. Nothing to crazy and she does burn a bit depending on the loads I haul. Always keep on top of it, better to check every few weeks than wind up not registering!
