My EF starts up like a dream and runs really quiet for a while.
However once it gets hot its gets a rattly sound around the top end.

I'm running penrite hpr10 Gas (10w50).
Tried thicker oil, no difference.

Any ideas on what this could be.

150k on the clock.
Dedicated LPG.

Cheers

could be chain slap, try replacingthe tensioner or even resetting it.
