Try to pin point the noise to help us more . A trick my Dad used was to use a 2'chunk off a broom handle or else a 3/4" dowel rod as a noise locator .No kidding ,he could actually tell how well an engine was performing . He was a carrer Ford Moto Co certified mechanic (old school) . I can remember when the first hi-tech engine analizing machine was introduced into the Ford dealership where he worked . He refused to try or trust it to the point the owner gave him an altimatum of going to Fords training school to learn how to operate that machine or quit . Guess what , he quit . Then he went to work at Joy Manufacturing here in Franklin . It was funny that after he had left the dealership , the 2 ow3ners would call & beg him to come in & help the new / younger mechanics figure out a problem with vehicles they were working on . Dad would always carry his dowel rod in his tool chest . Others couldn't believe how he could get those new engines to talk to him thru that dowel rod. So ,you say during the first few seconds after starting your 660 you hear a tapping noise. Have someone help you by sitting on the tractor as you get in position . Try first to place the dowel rod against your ear & against the water pump , then start moving back the side of the engine crank case & head areas after your helper starts the tractor . If the noise only last a few seconds , you'll have check those ares quickly . If the noise stops , shut the tractor off , wait a bit & restart it & try rechecking again . Now if the noise quits once the engines warm , you may have to try this again sometime . Also being that the PTO turns with the engine , you may wanta try the dowel rod test at the PTO pump area . Have you checked your fluid levels ? I do hope this helps . Post back & good luck . God bless , Ken
