Maybe pull valve covers too and see if you see any glaring issues.  I've never heard of a chain letting go on these M100 motors but all possibilities must be explored I would think.

Great minds think alike - yet again.  I did exactly that on one side, but nothing obvious was amiss.  I'll look at the other side tomorrow.  I'm going to start another thread as the title of this is no longer germane.  Thx,
