Not sure what, but I would think the rod went or the piston split. Only a small noise, when it let go. Was havin trouble with the drive belt for the blower, so got that fixed, took it out to test it in the snow bank, well never even got to the snow bank, and, kablewie. Oh, and that's the tractors name kablewie, had an engine go in it last year.
Just above idle when it went, hopefully no damage to the block.

This is the tractor we use at my sons place.

It's been a while but I don't think mine was. Made the same noises too. I want to say it was a 16 hp. single cylinder.

If it is like my 145, the engine is mounted with rubber bushings. I will bet it is the ballance "Gerinade" gears, if you had not already removed them.

The closed side tractor ('77-'83) used rubber mounts for the engine. The open sides ('72-'76) had the pan welded into the frame. I thought my 16HP had a separated piston till I took it apart. Rod was in many pieces!

Not that generation, only the '72-75 years had the oilpan welded to the frame because it was also the front axle pivot as well. Those were the good ones!! The 76 models had the engines bolted to a plate that was welded in.

Has a 14 in it. The engine that blew up last year is a 12. I did the 12 over, so it's ready to go back in. Just have to change the starter and a few things and be running, but I would rather the 14 hp, so will take it apart to see if we can fix it quickly, if not, we will put the 12 back in. Then fix the 14 for a spare.

Sorry to hear it but at least you have the 12 ready to go.

And you reminded me of one of my favorite cartoons. Calvin and Hobbs
