Hi, please advise.  It seems to be fine with a cold engine - video cold start.  As it slowly heats up it can be heard as a tinkling.  Video 2. We don't know what it can be!  Thanks for the help.




Status update.  Click removed.  It was enough to adjust the throttle vacuum.  It was very much scattered.  The sound of the engine is better and the click to go away.
