Sounds a lot like a suzuki dt2.2 I had a while back, doesn't sound like anything is wrong to me. I would clamp it to something before starting though.

Thanks thats a relief!

Could turn out to be a good little bargain then.

Like you said, maybe the vibration of not being fixed to anything is adding to the noise?
