Hi
I just bought a 1992 900 16v with the 2.1 engine it has 172k on the clock - on a cold start up I get a very obvious rattling from the timing chain but this really quietens down to the point of disappearing when the engine warms up - I’m pretty sure it’s not the valve lifters as it’s definitely more like chain slap but am I right that chain slap doesn’t go away with warming up - could it be a stuck tensioner ?
thanks for any advice
