AO Smith GPVX - 75L clinking noise

I just purchased a 75 gal HWH for my radiant heat. It was delivered yesterday. When the lowered it off the truck it was still on a shipping pallet. I tilted it from side to side to walk it into my garage for storage until I need it. I noticed a clinking noise and seemed to come from the top. I know there are tubes running down but are they supposed to be loose? I took a video with audio but can't seem to attach.

    Hi, Could you put the video up somewhere else and post a link? It would be good to hear it.

    Yours, Larry

    Hi, If it's a gas fired heater, that could be the flue baffle clanking around. Pull that up and out and see if the noise happens anymore. B)

    Yours, Larry

    Ok, I'll try that. It's got the direct power vent so I'll have to remove that.
