Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
How did you have the arrows on the cams pointed when you removed the old belt?
We can check to see if the set up is correct. This is an interference engine, meaning that the valves can contact the pistons if it is out.
Would pumping the primer bulb make the sound go away?
We can defiantly check this out.
About how long does the engine run now?
the fuel pump is driven off the cam. If the fuel pump is running low on fuel, it will begin to tick. If you can start the engine, after primer the bulb, allow it to run for a minute. If it begins the ticking, pump the bulb to see if it will go away. If so, we need to look at the fuel system. If not, we need to look else where.
Your welcome. Please let me know how it goes.
