Agree that something was done wrong. Here is the thing, if the timing belt was installed and run incorrectly then it would mean that valves are bent….which is a non-starter for me. Rather than trying to fix it, I rather part with it….or part it. Not sure. Unfortunately I have some other projects and don’t have the space to have it torn apart. I will disassemble it again but no way to see if there is bent valves unless I take the heads apart, which I may do out of curiosity as I have $0 dollars invested in this thing.that image got flagged as porn for me.
It has to be taken apart again - and tech these days are 'JR' - so my guess is he did it wrong started it up and heard 'bad sounds' then re-did it, didn't fix it completely so now he's just going to avoid talking about it.
with some luck re-do the job and hope it works again. (its 1 reason I do the absolute min of service since in my experience 60% of the time they do the job wrong even tho its easy to service) And many don't consult the proper service manual.
