    2000 virage 700 cc

    I have a question about my virage... I bought it about a month ago with out starting. so today I started it for the first time and starts no problem and seems to run good but on the front of the engine (by the oil pump) sounds like some clicking when the engine idles Iíve never heard this type of engine running before so I don't know if this noise is normal!!! But when I rev the engine it goes away!

    Where are you located?

    The oil pump is mounted on the front of the flywheel housing. The pump is driven by a plastic cap on the front end of the crank shaft.

    You might want to remove the oil pump and ensure the oil pump drive is working properly.

    Another possibility is that you have a loose connecting rod bearing.

    The engine runs so I believe the pump is ok
    I was using stethoscope the clicking is al over the engine,
    But without stethoscope it sounds like on the front, I know sound travels thru metal
    Is there some video of that engine running Ö?

    How long has the engine been running like this?

    Perhaps you can record a short demonstration of the sound that concerns you.

    Is the sound the same when the engine is running in the water, with a load on the jet pump?
