    How would one determine what is excessive wear on something that has 200,000 miles?

    I'm going to take a stab at this one, i'm guessing the timing chain is very loose and getting a lot of bouncing around, also take a look at the cam gear it may be just as bad.

    just a thought

    Zip.

    Is this a counter-balance motor?

    yes


    I looked at the cam I do see some marks on it,so I'm sure it's all junk.

    I would say at 200.000 miles the whole engine is at the end of the line :wink:
