Welcome to SBF Chimere. Possible head gasket leak or a hole in the muffler?

Without actually hearing or seeing your engine, no one could guarantee the engine will continue to run without problems. I wish you luck with the next storm since the noise could be nothing OR a major engine failure.

Is it a flathead? For a flathead (vs OHV), checking the valve clearances is still pretty straightforward, but adjusting the clearances is more involved.

Good luck! A video, if available, would be interesting.
