Re: [IH CUB LoBoy Series] Knocking NOT a good sign!
- I have one in the same condition I bet. Its real tired and has a lot of blowby and wont pull the mower hardly. With the knocking it might be about ready to throw a rod. Time for a rebuild I fear. Or the another possibility with knocking under load might be the spark timing might be off. But that has nothing to do with the blowby thats a product of worn rings and bores.

Subject: [IH CUB LoBoy Series] Knocking NOT a good sign!
Alrighty folks... another wonderful stumper.. I just bought my 184 a
short while ago, and it just had the head replaced this season. When
under a decent load (mowing on a hill for instance) it starts knocking
fairly loudly and starts to lose power. There is also excessive
blow-by coming from the breather on the oil filler neck during this as
well. The blow-by is always there, but really obvious when pulling,
as at the end of mowing there is some oil on the filler neck
(external). Any ideas???
