My 1999 escort's flywheel hits the block when revved up. Heard grinding noise and replaced timing belt and tensioner pully, still heard noise so I removed the lower half of the motor and discovered a grove worn into the block by the flywheel. Flywheel not hitting when stopped only when revved. No end play in crank. Looks like crank sensor just replaced because it was sheared off maybe? Now it has a washer as a shim behind it. Whats going on?
