I'm pretty handy, but I don't always know what things are called. I need some help with some part names.
I'm having problems with my Trane XE78. It makes a lot of noise everytime it kicks on. I was able to track the noise down to something that looks like a fly-wheel located inside what I think is the exaust manifold. The motor seems to be running fine, but it looks like the fly-wheel piece is rubbing against the inside of manifold for some reason.
I was able to add a couple of washers as spacers, which in turn moved the fly-wheel piece away from the housing, but that only worked for a few days, and now it's rubbing and making the noise again, so I'm positive that something in the fly-wheel assembly has worn out and needs replacing.
Am I using the right names for these parts? I think I'm handy enough to replace the fly-wheel piece, and the entire manifold if necessary, but I don't even know what parts to ask for. Again, the motor seems to be running fine, but I don't know if the whole thing is only available as an assembly or not.
Any advice from someone wiser and more experienced would be welcome.
