    I recently purchased a Husqvarna 61 inch with a 27 Kohler engine. When i get into deep grass i hear a clicking sound coming from the engine. The engine is not bogging at all and the cut looks great but the sound concerns me. Does anyone have any idea what the sound might be? :confused:

    Check your oil, make sure you're using 10W-30 not SAE 30. Could be valves clicking.

    It clicks in the deep grass but as soon as soon as i get into lower grass it quits clicking. I turn around to make another pass it starts right when i hit the deep grass and stops when the grass thins again i figured if it was valves it would do it all the time.

    With the engine under load you can get extra pressure on the exhaust system. Check your header gaskets to the muffler and the muffler itself. My 25 Command is doing that right now and I need to change out the gaskets. Cut a piece of fuel hose about 3 feet long. Hold one end right to your ear and probe with the other end around the gasket area for the possible leak.
