So THAT'S what caused the knocking!
So that's why the Johnson Bar needed fixing.
That's nothing. In my auto shop class back in the 1980s the teacher showed us a head off a small block Chevy where the mechanic removed it from the engine despite forgetting to remove the short outboard bolts. When he got frustrated wondering why it wouldn't come off he used a large pry bar. Well he finally got it off... well, most of it anyway. The rest of it was left behind on the block!

That identical thing happened to me I was 16 years old 300 miles from home on interstate 64 mile marker 80 sitting along the interstate with a dumb look on my face and $17 in my pocket parents unaware I was going to Indiana chasing a girl I'd met that summer. Small block Chevrolet center bottom plate screw on a two-barrel carburetor went through the intake and through the valve and cracked the head and left a mark on top of the piston. Chasing that girl was the best thing I ever did after 30 years I wouldn't know what to do without her
Re-bar I calls it.
I'm worse with tools than I am with nuts and bolts.
Built a FE engine for a fella once.Working on carb his ownself.Dropped a 1/4 nut down the intake.
Eh , just figured it would blow out the Exhaust,..
