volvo D240 problems

Just installed new engine, worked great for 3 hours then started banging
towards rear of engine. Checked fuel, filters and injectors. Seems like it's
coming from area around starter? It has a 130 s saildrive. Gets noisier
in gear but still there in neutrol. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Brad

A rule of thumb is, when ever you have the engine out to do major work, refit with a new Dampener plate.
