Alright, that's a reasonable guess too, so is there a service limit on the cam chain? There's more detail in my post 2 days back.

how do you remove and install a new cam chain? I understand the valve shimming process in theory, so is it a matter of dangling the chain down till its on the bottom gear, then looping it around the cams or do you have to tear down further?

I've never been in there myself, but I think I'll attempt it one of these weekends.... It's just getting too noisy! I'll try and post a vid of the metallic sound I hear....
