Any ideas what this noise can be?
A few weeks out to have it serviced, any suggestions on what to check?

Power head base gasket, loose sparkplug and lower unit would be my first checks.

I think i got it fixed but won't know for sure until i get it back on the water.
There is a metal dumbbell looking orifice behind the O2 sensor that was completely blocked with carbon buildup.
A great mechanic told me what to look for and how to clean it.
Thanks for you suggestions Gary, I did check the spark plugs and they were all tight.
