Re: My motor is making a clanking sound
The recommended amount of oil for these motors is 250ml (8 oz.) in the crankcase, not 4oz. Where did you come up with the idea that 4oz. was the proper amount? As for the clanking noise you talk about I think that the members that have said that you probably have a loose connecting rod are pointing you in the right direction. There have been several members recently who have had the oil slinger break off the bottom of the rod cap due to the bolts loosening and the slinger then hits the bottom of the crank case.
