Timing cover noise

Does anybody else ever have this problem?? I've heard a couple of Zuks make the same noise. Mine seems to only make the noise when its cold. I can push in slightly on the top of the timing cover and the noise will stop. Any ideas???

Re: Timing cover noise

same on mine, there's supposed to be a foam cushion between the cover and metal piece(at least there's remnants on mine) i just added an extra bit of foam tape to take up space when i had my timing cover off. noise stopped good enough for me

Re: Timing cover noise

the noise is from the back of the upper timing cover where
it mounts against the camshaft seal it is supposed to have
foam glued there as a sound deadner. for now pry away from
the front of the valve cover and slide a piece of foam
tape down between edge of head & sheet metal back of timing
cover. 1st time you have off your timing cover take off
the cover over cam seal clean and glue a piece of thick
felt on the back--oldzuki

Re: Timing cover noise

My 87 does the same thing, it makes a loud noise because the metal plate behind the upper ttiming belt pully is rubbing on the timng belt pully.. Push the covor back and it goes away. if you cant just bend it back a bit or somthing, maybe use a bungee cord, also try removing the 10mm nut in the center of the timing belt covor. I wasted a covor because it was rubbing.
