THE SOUND YOU HEAR IS A STRETCHED CAM CHAIN THEY HAVE SELF ADJUSTING CAM CHAIN TENSIONERS ITS TIME TO REPLACE YOUR CAM CHAIN YOU DONT WANT IT TO SKIP A TOOTH AND TAKE OUT YOUR PISTON AND VALVES POSSIBLY MORE
If the cam chain jumped then the tensioner is not tight. Timing is way off and valve hit piston. Need to **** case and replace tensioner, dry time then install new piston and pull vales to see if they are bent.
It can be done, but will cost an arm and a leg. The main casings will have to be replaced. This means the motor will have to split and rebuit.
I would suggest that you give the motor a good service. This means doing the shims as well.
This is a good motor, and generally do not suffer from starting issues.
If you stuggle, let your local dealer do the necessary servicing.
