Always check your repair monuel before using any tip to see if it is going to hurt power or the ignition system. Increase the rpm until the noise is heard, then disable the fuel injector at a time. When the noise quits you have found the cylinder with the problem. If your engine is carb you have to pull a spark plug wire at a time to determine the cylinder. If the noise does not quit the problem is at the top end of the motor or the belt or access. system. One last tip, cracked automatic flywheels will sound like a rod bearing.
