Bryan, If you changed the oil pump on your 1996 Nissan Pickup and it involved removing the timing chain then I would say you did not get the timing set back up correctly and hopefully you do not have the interference engine because if you do you possibly could have bent the valves in the head. This can be costly. Here's what I need to know. Did you remove the timing chain to do the oil pump? If you did send the engine size to my website below through "Contact Us" and I'll see if your engine is a interference engine. We may be able to work together and get you out of this mess. Have an awesome day Bryan! Auto Repair
in front of the deisel pump the gear wheel is slightly cut/chip mark to the back of it take it out, and place it on t or n (t for turbo n for non turbo) .normal timming is good .If not hand turn until #1 piston is up and #1 cam shaft lobes are not touching cup & shim then set pump to desired mark
I checked out the pajero forum, they don't mention the bottom tensioner as being the noise maker here but rather a sloppy chain, stretched beyond the tensioner and riding on the guides. The noise sounds like it comes from the fan area as a metallic chattering. They sell a chain that has a master link in it, and you don't have to tear down the entire engine again to get to it, just the top cover,, Cut the old chain, and use it to pull the new one through. Also, if your chain did jump its gear, it would only be a matter of 8 - 10 miles before the cam breaks. Hope this helps.
