I quite sure I can rule out the exhuast. I wouldn't consider myself by any means a master mechanic, but I'm pretty saavy when it comes to turning the wrenches.
The timing chain might be a reasonable concern and culprit for this noise. If it's not that, it's got to be something in the valve train. I'll check it out after I get back from Colorado next week.
Just in case I have to dive into that timing chain...anyone care to help? CJ7Jeff? (Actually...if he's around, he doesn't have a choice!)
I'm livin' it....lovin' it...and as right now, the only way it's going away is if someone steals it! And if that happens, they had better pray to GOD, Allah, Jesus, and every other religious idle, that I don't find them!
