well in about an hour and a half I have the front end off, radiator out and valve cover off. I forgot how long this crap takes. Anyways, the top guide rail and tensioner looks fine. Just as they did about a year and a half ago when I put cams in.
I get the rattle at about 1200-16-1700 rpm on both rev up and rev down. My question is, would a falty tensioner bolt cause the rattle alone if everything else is kosher?? Does the bottom chain make as much noise?? I was thinking maybe low oil pressure or a blocked oil passage to the tensioner bolt
