It does sound good. Is the catch pan for the vent tube, or do you have an annoying leak??

Thank you sir. I just needed some expert ears to make sure it sounded right. The catch pan is for the vent tube. And I do have an annoying leak.

I noticed it dripping onto the generator. It was dripping off the front of the front cylinder. I just just replaced the push rod o rings with the cork style ones when I replaced both pistons due to a cracked front piston head. I haven't taken a hard look at it yet.
