Rod knock

Was selling a 7.3 IDI engine and guy buying it jumped in the truck revved it up to about 1000 to 1500 rpms a few times and said rod knocking that the engine is no good. I can't hear well from war and so I'm including a video tell me what you hear., this is the video I was using to sell the engine. Was selling it for $300 if he pulled it $500 if I pulled it now he wants to buy it for $300 with me pulling it, I bought damn near slugged him with breaker bar.

Sounds like an IDI to me until you revved it toward the end, kinda heard a knock then. I dunno, military ruined my hearing too.

Well maybe we can get a civilian to chime in or let us borrow a hearing aid.

LMAO, the VA gave me some hearing aids but I don't wear em much, the background noise gets amplified too loud.

My boy didn't know what I was listening to and I asked him what he thought. His first words were, it sounds like an IDI. But he heard something when you revved it too.

Yeah with background noises I can't hear anything after that. Actually doubt hearing aids will help at same time been denied them, imagine that. Sounds like piston slap, guess I will know when I get around to pulling the engine to put mine in and drop the oil pan to see.
