Well, I didn't start at the top end..I started with the crankcase cover opposite the clutch, I pulled it off to find something that looked like something out of the jetsons or something lol.
The cam chain is tight now, but I believe it needs to be re-timed..any advice on this one???
I thought the hose at the bottom corner was coming off the thermostat, surprise, it was the water pump and it's got an alarming amount of slack in it. It's loose enough that i can, with little effort, remove it from the bottom pulley simply due to the lack of tension.
It's been hitting the side of the case, cutting two grooves (a hair under 1/16th deep) in the crankcase. Also the guide/guard on the right hand side is nearly cut apart from the chain slapping it. Further more behind the main sprocket on the crank is a bolt head that is missing roughtly a 1/4 of the head, from the chain slapping against it. The outside surface of the chain is for the most part smooth, it's missing all the little bumps that a chain typically has. It's a miracle I haven't had it jump off yet!
With the cover off...
Picture of the chain, notice the guide towards the top of the picture as well as the scarring on the case. It doesn't look that bad in the picture, but it's pretty rough in person.
I'm thinking I need to order a new waterpump chain, guide/guard thing, a new gasket, and maybe a service manual lol.
I put a wrench on the crank and tried to turn it over slowly, when I do I hear a loud hissing coming from the inside of the motor at the bottom of the cylinder. Could that be air getting past the piston?? I'm wondering if that could be part of my oil burning problem, as well as my compression leak.
I can't find this stupid water pump chain anywhere online to order it, since the shops are all closed now.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated guys!!
