Actually, if the crank has NO end play whatsoever, then there could be pressure on the bearings by being pre-loaded. If the bearings are too tight, they will make weird knocks too.

Can't wait till you find the cause of this problem !!! Didn't some engines have some kind of compression release ? Could that make a knock if there was a problem with it ? Al

I'm pretty sure it's the rod, based on the scoring now.


Will the crank and rod from a HH100 work in a HH120?

Bill
I would plastigage the rod bearing just to be sure.
I might also consider reringing as you will never get the rings back in there original location. Just to not make an oil burner.

plastigage?


I can't afford to put any money into anything right now as it is, I just need it to make it through this winter so I have something to move snow with. I'm plowing 3 driveways, mine and two neighbors that are elderly. If it burns some oil, fine by me. Next summer is when I will be able to work on things and hopefully have some money to put into it as the tractor needs work too.

Would the crank match too?


Right now I'm looking at $59 alone to have the crank repaired, not sure on the rod yet. new parts are going to cost at least $300 form what I have found.

Cranks are different, HH120 has longer stroke.

Ok, thanks. I got a tip to use some emery cloth on the current crank and get it smooth, than take the hh100 rod and put it on and turn it by hand listening for a knock. than go off that.
