Ron, the Horton clutch rattles like a steel can full of bolts at an idle, quiet and smooth going down the road.

When I heard that noise I opened up the front and checked the idler pully. It was loose so I got the parts and fixed it. While there I wobbled the compressor pulley, the bearings were noticibaly lose, so I replaced that as well. The Horton still rattels!

Aaron, Want another laugh? I also replace the Air Compressor for an oil leak and the idler pully for a rattle. Still had the leak and Horton rattle.

Take it apart and blow the dust out, that should help.
