Cam bolt wasn't tight. The cam key way is chewed off the cam, and the timing set was rubbing on the front cover. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get it back together.

Here, enjoy the initial start up clip:

Dont really know, only thing that has been removed is the front cover/ timing set. My tools are still at my buds, so I havent got to check if the crank its self is locked or free.

I was planning to take the whole thing apart and send it to an engine shop for cleaning, and rebuild it and replace whatever.

But, now im gonna test the water instead, gonna drain the oil and see how it looks. If it aint too bad looking- install stock cam, refill, run, drain change filter- repeat a few times. After so if its still running and not having issues, and makes a good month no problems i'll feel safe putting another cam in it.

Just bought Sixshooter's GT2. The rest of the shit i'll need to swap cams and timing arrived today. Hopefully its alive again in less than a couple weeks. Pulled the plugs earlier and the bottom end at least is not locked.
