Hi all well ive noticed that my cam chain was making noises so ive started taking it apart to investigate. How much should you beable to push the tensioner down by hand. i can push mine down abit. i also have a whining noise coming from cambelt area, i have taken the alternator belt off to see if it could be anything atached to that but it isn't. i replaced the cambelt last year along with water pump and the runner (guide) so thats either oil pump, tensioner, crank, cams left.
is there a common thing on these engines that start to wear on the cambelt area?
also just taken rocker cover off and was wondering if the sludge and carbon crap was normal pics here
