    Hey all..just installed a 2 stroke 66cc and it has a rattle kind of pinging sound from the engine..vibration makes it louder..how can i fix this? it seems to be running ok but Im guessing that is a signal that something is wrong.
    Help is appreciated !

    I'd first check motor mounts, then head gasket

    you could check your spark plug gap, at one point mine was twice as wide as it should have been. it did run but made an odd sound. now that its gaped right, the sound is less noticeable.
