I am reposting it again - it was no response. I think my question whether
it could clank was not clear. What I ment was the clanking sounded like once
per revolution (my estimation). I expect that, taking into account symmetry
of CV joint mechanism, if it worn out then it will clank # of balls more
frequent then once per revolution. Of course, it might not the case at
all. That's why my question.
The rest of questions below I hope have more sense.
