3z355j 2z499d compressor clanking?

My compressor was working great but I started it up and it started to make a clanking metal on metal noise like the piston rod or crankshaft broke.

Sorry, that's probably what it is, the piston rod or crankshaft broke.

But if you haven't already, remove the belt guard and belt, and turn the pump manually. If the pump is broken, you'll probably hear nearly the same noise.

If you're lucky, might just be something fell into the belt area...hard to tell without actually hearing it.

Good luck.
