So in my buys is a built in box.Open the box take my tools out and start the engine.Idles very nice next minute a big bang behind me and quickly switch off the engine.Take a look at the back for oil or any signs of damaged as it sounded like a conrod through the block.
Nothing wrong and restart engine listening very carefully for any funny noises all good.

So what happened then I figured out I did not close the hinged top of the box and that feel down and .......Yes my heart is ok now.
