    My tractors really messed up. I'm out of bussiness till it's fixed. When i turn it off its shakes vilently and makes a clucking sound as the rpms are way down right before it turns off.

    Does it make the noise while the engine is hot?

    It does this when it is cold and hot. Also it does this right before it turns off. I turn the key to off and you guys know it takes a sec for it to be off. Its in that sec.

    Watch the engine the next time you turn it off. If you see any movement check motor mount bolts . make sure none are missing or loose. (better yet check even if you don't see movement. Loose bolts can cause the noise you describe. The longer they are run loose ,the more they wallow out the holes in the frame and the worse the noise gets.
