brand new front cover, pump, and gears. When i got this motor it ran fine just had a oil leak. I tore it apart, swapped gaskets ect... Put it all back together then had this noise. I posted a video about it. I fixed the oil leak though. Well everybody i talked to thought it was the oil pump. I got a new pump, and installed everything. Still have a noise though.
that is very possible. be careful spraying lube around the timing belt. dont wanna give it a reason to jump timing haha. if you do change it out, go ahead and get a timing belt kit. they got em at napa. comes with new idler pulley, tensioner pulley, timing belt and balance shaft belt. not sure of the retail price. oh yeah, might as well replace the water pump while you are in there.
