I know we’ve seen enough of these threads but I’m fairly confident that after leaving the truck sitting for 9 days while I was on vacation I was greeted with a dead battery and the chain rattle. This is the first time I’ve heard it and it seems to go away after the truck has been running for a bit. I’ll let you guys judge the rest. Here’s the link to the video.

Can you film a cold start? Usually you can hear the chain slap around a bit.

Yup I’ll do it tomorrow when I start it up for the first time. Do you hear any sort of Cain noise though? I feel like it’s more audible in person but it sounds like rattle slapping and I haven’t heard it until I got back. Such a warming welcome home!!

Sounds fine to me. Time away made you forget how loud this engines are.

It does sound normal to me as well, but then again when its a fairly new issue, it tends to go away when warmed up. Definitely a cold start video would help.

well good. I Guess some time away from the beast really made me forget. I’ll send a video of a cold start probably tomorrow but I guess I’m just being haunted by the ghost of timing guides.

Good to hear that it working out. I completely understand worrying about things that may not be an issue.
