As far as I understand it, the one on the crankshaft

But I can't see exactly where on the parts drawing. May have to go through and look

Went through and had a look. 

Its the nut on the end of the crankshaft.  Its not shown in the Husky parts manual, as far as I can see, it should be shown after that gear (3) in that drawing.

The locking plate is still in place (Conrad hadn't split the casing yet),  and you can move the nut by hand and the resulting play could very well make a loud knocking sound, we sort of simulated it by moving the whole assembly back and forth.

This looks like the best explanation given that everything else looks in good condition.

Got my engine back on Thursday, but only had a few minutes to work on it yesterday evening - just got it back into the frame that's all :thumleft:

Today I've been fussing around it like a mother hen, its fantastic!  More and more bits are being cleaned and re-installed.  Hopefully will be finished tomorrow.  Have to go out tonight though.

A few points for others to look at while I remember.

The swing arm bolt was very rusted.  Its difficult to replace because its a non standard size having to sit inside a tube its smaller than normal because you have enough space to get a socket in - the local nut and bolt place just shook their heads when I asked them for a replacement.  It fits a 22 socket while a standard nut that size fits a 24 socket. 

So I gave mine a thorough going over with a wire brush, it was quite pitted but still functionally fine.  I smeared it in thick wheel bearing grease to stop it rusting in future and re-used it.  I would advise others to just check theirs and do the same if necessary.  It sits behind a little plastic cover inside a tube so the water obviously doesn't drain out of there easily - perfect conditions for rust.

We think it was just the nut on the right hand side of the crankshaft which came a bit loose.

Started my engine last night - started virtually first try.

It was late so I just let it idle for a few minutes.

Sounded very nice!  :ricky:

So roll-on the weekend!

You took your engine out to tighten that nut  :o
I did not even drop the oil out of mine when I tightened it, let alone take the engine out.

Ja I know - pretty stupid!  :P

At the time the consensus was a crank shaft  or a conrod bearing.  That's what it sounded like.

I did take the clutch cover off and had a look, but it didn't occur to me to test the nut for tightness.

Oh well - live and learn!

I'm just glad it wasn't anything major and its back in one piece again, was getting a bit forlorn with it all in pieces.

Also was quite a nice exercise taking all apart, getting to know the bike a bit better.

But i cant wait to ride it next weekend.
