I was mowing the lawn yesterday and suddenly there was a different pinging noise coming from the top end... I was quick on the switch and shut it off. I took the head off (TR10D) and found a pin of some sort in the head.

Luckily, the damage was minor and could be ground out. My quandry is where did the pin come from? I went through the carb parts diagrams and the engine manual and I cannot locate the part... it measures about 1/2" long, about 1/8" in diameter and has an end that looks like it had a C-clip on it...

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

must have been loud to be heard over a mower deck, an engine running full power, and if you're like some people, makeing hotrod engine sounds while mowing, no joke my neighbor does that some times. but anyway was it loud?

Do you have a picture of it?

Years ago I remember my Grandfather telling me about something similar happening on the Bolens 1000 with a TR-10D. He was blowing snow with it and it was making the same noise. He opened up the head and found a piece of metal broke free from somewhere.
I cant remember exactly what broke off or where it came from.

well heres another story, a buddy stopped by to grab an old pool ladder and i was tearing the deck apart, he said on his 10 horse troybilt rototiller a screw off his carb got sucked up and into his top end. he said it did no damage just made a noise. it seems to be half way common.
