    6x4 Noisy Diesel Engine ??

    I recently bought a 6x4 diesel gator |(about 500 hours). The Engine is noisy at idle - i removed the engine clutch assembly from the engine but engine is still noisy when idling - The engine seems to get smoother and quieter when revved up.

    It drives ok but the engine is very noisy when idling - i have drained the fuel and refilled with fresh fuel in case the fuel left in tank was poor quality but still knocking /noisy at idle.

    Cant see anything loose on or around engine.

    Tried another 6x4 at local dealer and this one seems a lot quieter.

    Anyone else had noise issues at idle with yanmar engine ?

    Any adjustments to fuel pump / timing etc.. ?

    Thanks

    All my diesels are noisy. I have an old air cooled diesel generator that I run my house on when the hurricanes come along and blow our power lines down. That dang thing sounds like it is about to come apart at any soon moment. I put it out behind the garage on a concrete slap and built a box around it. Still loud.

    I'm not sure about your 6x4 engine as I have never heard a 6x4 diesel but "noisy" is a relative term with diesels.

    Every year they seem to make a bit quieter though. Didn't answer your question but maybe someone can.
