Working on a Grizzly 700....

-motor turns over fine and the spark plug fires
-pops and snaps when you turn it over with the throttle open
-when you turn it over with throttle closed, it blows the TB off the head and fire out the intake.
-timing chain appears to be stretched quite a bit.

I've already recieved some help from a few members and I appreciate that, I just wanted to get some other opinions on what could possibly be the issue with this motor. Thanks in advance for your help...

Are the intake valves seating?

Have not pulled the head yet Jeff, but certainly there is something going on with the intake valves...

Just asking:

Would a proper valve adjustment clear up this problem?

It probably bent a valve, the one tooth that you saw being off was probably after it had been way off then jumped back to within one tooth of being right. Have you done a leak down compression test? That will tell you exactly what the deal is!

Verdict is in..... Both intake valves were slightly bent causing them not to seal...

Thanks for everybodys input....

Now to find out what caused them to bend so it doesnt happen again. Like I said earlier, if its all stock....it would be really hard to believe the valves could bend with all stock parts.

Its a griz. Could have easly bent the valves if he was in slop and sucked some in.

Considering the shape the timing chain was in, we believe it did jump time causing the valves and piston to kiss... Doesn't that sound sweet... KISS... :lol: But thats just what a couple ole country boys think, hell who knows....
