Glad you got the kit in. And also that it seams to have been the problem. I will agree with skyrydr2 on the clickity clack let it worm up good and see if it gets less noticable.

Glad it's running better. The B&S I have like that has a bit of noise to it also, but it's a deeper sound, not a clack. More like a piston slap or loose rod. One of these days I'll play with it.
