Don and others.  Thanks for your ideas today.  Will try them all this week to see about getting rid of this rattle.  It’s a little more than normal and definitely annoying.

Have you tried isolating the prop rod by putting o-rings or rubber/plastic washers in its mount?  That's a common source of bonnet rattle.

Ok, have had a bit of a challenge getting rid of a rattle at front of the
hood on the 3A.  I can't tell if it is the dzuz fasteners on the sides or
the main striker in the middle.  I put a rubber cap on the striker shaft and
that helped, but then it came back.  Any ideas?  Do the side fasteners need
a thin rubber washer between the hood and fastener underneath?
Any ideas appreciated.
