worse...might be the timing chain jumped a tooth~ take the timing cover off and inspect the timing marks...or- ...a compression test on each cylinder~

a friend of mine said it could b the time chain but he has to hear he way it sounds to b sure


where would the time chain be at?


If turning over slow or not at all could be loose or dirty battery cables, low battery, starter going bad or loose or dirty frame and motor negative battery connections


Well i tried to jump it off and checked all thecales to the battery andeverything is all good..everything is connected righti think we were working on the pastfew days and still nothing
