I need some help, I am trying to find the squeal noise underneath the passenger side valve cover. The chains and guides adjusters look ok from what I can see. The only thing I have a question about is the camshaft sprocket bushings...the passenger side sticks farther out than the driver side -- is this correct?? Are they both hanging out or just the passenger side?? Are these bushings supposed to be flush with the gear or ????
Anyone with knowledge please help... Thanks!

I'm not positive but would think that the passenger side would have to stick out further in order for the chain to line up properly.
The chains are on two separate sprockets on the crank.

I looked into that and yes they are designed be that way and since the slides are not really worn down and no visible damage i think its the tensioner on the passenger side since the chain is really tight on both sides of the cam gear i can barely flex the chain with hard pressure compared to the driver side that has no play but is not super tight. i think the passenger side tensioner is jammed or something causeing too much pressure on chain causing noise against slides until oil can lube it at start up. Have you heard of these tensioners jamming causing chain to be super tight all the time?
