Not my motor. I was looking to buy this one. The seller said it was making a loud noise and thought it might be a spun bearing or somthing along those lines.

Does it go away after a few minutes? I'm saying filthy liftrr assembly, made worse from a thick oil that was being used to get rid of the noise. Maybe...

He told me it did not go away. It got a little less noisy but never went away. Oil was 10w30.
