165 hydro problems

Eric i just bought a 165 hydro 2 weeks ago iv put around $400 into it to get it all ready for the new year because it sat for a little while before i bought it. So i just changed every thing to do with the motor like spark plug,oil,air cleaner,fresh gas.ect.... So what im have problems with is that if the tractor idles for about 10 mins it warms up and then a load knocking noise comes fun the motor and mind you it never did this before i changed all this stuff i need help asap please some one shine some light on this problem


bontai Joe Air cooled motors of this vintage should NEVER be allowed to idle for 10 minutes.It is an internally splash lubricated motor and needs higher RPMS to properly splash the oil where it needs to be. Also need higher RPMS for the engine fan to properly force cooling air around the motor. Also what oil are you using?
