xt225 engine wont turn over

Basically the engine i had the bolt to turn the crankshaft and it doesnt turn past a little before BDC and it feels like something is stuck or hitting it isnt anything involing the clutch or starter gear, we had the rotor off a while ago to replace the cam chain and the valves seemed werecame out and got jammed or anything in there and my tensioner broke on me an automatic and it was pushed out all the way what would that affect?

""tensioner broke""
I think you nailed it there. It does sound broken.

yeah the tensioner is out now but the engine spins but it stops at the same spot(about 4-5 o'clock) and wont move past that it goes either way and it gets stuck/stops there

basically I'm wondering what the tensioner being broke would've done to cause this problem?

Move this over to "The official XT225 Thread". Lots of expertise for the 225
over there.

That's a ball bearing cage. A bearing let go and the fragments jammed up the cam chain somewhere which blew out your tensioner.
