Default Help with whats wrong with engine.....

Hey guys I need yer help on this. I seen this ad on craigslist about them needing a mech to fig out what was wrong with his car. I emailed him and got a video of the engine running. I will post the ad that he put on craigslist to help too. Here is the video of the engine running. I think the timing jumped a tooth or 2. Let me know whatcha guys think.
I posted a new video down below that is much better in quality. You can really hear the knocking and tapping.

Sounds like there's more than one knock on that engine. If you're thinking about buying it, I'd stay clear.

Sounds like some valve clatter, along with a rod knocking. Just because he pulled the pan doesn't mean it's not a rod.

could be the flywheel broke or the harmonic blancer also dose it have oil pressure.If not the oil pickup could be clogged.

But I would stay clear just incase somthing flys off. :lol:
