Re: installed ape cct still knocks
Well, whether you use the OEM tensioner or a manual one a badly worn chain is still going to be a badly worn chain so I wouldn't expect it to sound significantly different.
Get a tube or stethoscope and listen all around the engine to try to isolate the sound.
Also, an oil pressure test should tell you if it's a main or bigend bearing and a compression test might indicate a top end problem.
Dumping the oil will tell you if there's any metal floating around.
