So I installed my shaker motor into my Ghostbuster and I like it when its not going flat out. But, when it does go flat out man is it noisy. Its so noisy I’m not sure its right. What do you guys think? Go here for a look and listen.

Also use some blue threadlocker on the 4 mounting bolts to prevent them from loosening.

Do shaker motors normally make that sort of noise?

See if the counter weights are loose on the motor shaft.

No that is not a normal sound!

The threaded rod across the cop of the shaker needs to be tightened a bit.
