Same problem, I've tried everything I can think of, it started making the chain noise, so I put a new chain, tensioners, guides, pump, cleaned the oil port, and still gets loose on right side, noise is getting worst, I've pulled it apart 3 times now, oil changes are getting expensive, what do I do?
