Engine clatter

Hello all.
I just got a 99 Grizzly from my Dad. He had the engine rebuilt about 5 years ago. When he picked it up he was told it needed a new Carburetor. He never put one on it just let it set.
I installed a new carb. Changed the oil. Checked valve clearance within limits. Checked timing good. Removed timing chain tensioner at the last cog on the adjuster but not stuck.
Now the problem, starts easy. But has a clatter that sounds to be coming from the timing chain area. Any help is greatly appreciated.


clatter, engine
