Ok so now am getting frustrated. Put it back together with new cam chains, guides and tensioner arms. Did not replace the tensioners as they were free with no binding or sticking. Started it up and still had rattle. Took to a shop and had them listen. (brought it to them on a truck to minimize running) They said it sounded like valves, possibly a spring. Removed engine and took top end apart. Checked cam chains in case a tensioner was indeed binding, both were good and tight (not too tight though). Removed valve springs and valves. All valve springs look real good, none broken. Anybody have any ideas or suggestions of where to look now? Thanks. :x

I did remove the cam chain adjusters and they moved freely.
