timing chain rattle

having a problem with a friends car, whenever you start the car you get a very lovely loud rattle which seems to be the timing chain. its only done it since being rebuilt. why would it be doing it and whats the easiest way to fix it. it only does it for 2 seconds or so but its very noisy.
