This is a video of my SOHC V6 90,000 Kilometres after timing chain replacement.

It was a cheap E-bay kit back in 2011

I was getting a fair bit of chain lash on start-up and some other tensioner related noise during driving so I changed my hydraulic tensioners and was met with this god forsaken chattering.

It's the tensioner and guide moving up and down.
