Slapping/ticking sound from engine.


I'm having a ticking sound, rather it's more like a slapping sound like you would get from a playing card slapping against a bicycle spoke. Noise increases in speed with rpm increase.

It's coming from the drive-belt area but I cannot pinpoint it further.

Is there anything that is known for making this type of sound? Belt tension is to spec and doesn't appear visibly worn.

Thanks in advance!
