Long time ago, a friend of mine bought an XK-150 coupe. On the (40 mile)
drive home, we noticed a metallic tapping from the engine that seemed to be
getting progressively louder.

His solution was to turn up the radio.

Unfortunately, the radio couldn't be turned up high enough to mask the
sound of a con-rod exiting the block.

He was then able to turn the radio off - the car didn't make ANY sounds at
all for about six months, when it finally had a 283 Chebby transplanted
into it, and not well, either.

Unsatisfactory solutions to both problems.
