what is the life expectancy of a timing chain? 450 has over 4,000 miles, i cant read hours from bad display. i was told at the dealer that some old man only used it to check out the cows an such on his farm. E must have run into one once because the front bumper is pushed in on rt.side from a wreck. i would bet his wife only drives that car to church on sundays. ever so often i hear a noise, metalic when idle, an when hitting top speed it seems like engine is running backwards. i lose momentum. like when you tack to high. it could be carburetor, but, i dont think so. //Ed
when in neutral, and i goose the gas, while idling down, i hear the metallic sound, maybe its late gas detonation.
