Hi guys, long time lurker but 1st time poster.
My 3TB engine (in an SRX400 frame) has a knocking sound from what sounds like the bottom end. Replacing the camchain and putting the chain guide the right way round
after setting the tappets dulled it but its still there. Its primarily noticable at idle, cant hear anything after that coz the pipe a 'bit' noisy. Any obvious things to check? The camshaft looks mint so not likely to be from previous oil starvation, I hope?
As an aside how the hell are you supposed to get the covers off the engine, I mean the ones to turn the crankshaft and see the timing marks? Had to get someone else to do it! any tips?
