Default RE: DLE-111 first start... warranty used, but things are looking good.

Had something closes to this happen with another 100 cc engine, Not a DLE.

When started it had a loud noise like a rod knocking, I check piston clearance, End ply on rod bearings and wrist pin bearing and all was good.

Finally found it to be a lose prop hub, Hub was tight enough that you could not fell it being lose by just checking it by hand but was lose enough to slip when engine was running.

By the time I figured out what it was it had twisted the crank and destroyed the key way slot in the prop hub.
