    Lubed up the clutch on my mower with some PBblaster while doing some routine maintanance the other day .Since then I noticed a rattle that is pronounced while idling.If you just lightly engage the blade lever the noise go's away.Everything seems to operate ok but was wondering if anyone else ran into rattling noise after a lubing the clutch?This was the first time I lubed the unit so I have no previous experience with this.At first I thought it was the motor (lifters) but put my ear down there and it sounds like the clutch.So is it nothing to worry about or time for a new clutch?

    Tried calling BOP but all I kept getting is the person on extension 266 is not available on both the sales and the service lines.With Irene coming through they may be having some technical difficulties.
