    O.k. So I got the f20b in. Didn't change the timing belt because everything looked fine.

    Took it out for a test drive and it was fine.

    Adjusted the distributor and it seemed fine..got about a 1/2 mile down the road and there was an abrupt drop in power.. almost like the timing had been severely retarded..

    I drove it home but there was now a distinct rattling sound from compressor side/region that increases with RPMs.

    I reset the distributor and the power was back..but there still remains this sound.

    Any thoughts? It sounds like marbles in a can...this blows.

    If you have the top timing belt cover off, a tool, socket or something may have fallen in and is flopping around inside. Just a thought. :hmm: Chech your tensioner.
