Picked up a H60 for a tractor and it runs decent with no smoke, but to me sounds like a rod knock at idle, but after watching some youtube vids, it seems they sound like mine. Are they just a noisy engine?

Mine on my Troybilt is not very loud, not really any knocking noises other than that time the rod broke :D . I know they can sound like the have a rod knock if the get end play on the crank.

Little used engines arent bad, the ones that have some hours can have End play or bearing (crank) slop.
