This started with bike backfire when starting and has not ran since. After checking everything I could brought bike to Honda they told me internal engine problem out of timing. I tore engine down found cam chain and tensioner in perfect condition. When i try to line up T mark with piston at tdc it does not line up. piston is at bottom of stroke. Does this mean crank damage. Honda told me they could not quote for repair with out removing head to determine what repairs needed. If crank would need replacing total rebuild approx cost $3000. bike is 2007 rancher 420 any advice would be appreciated.
