no idea mate. on my old ED I6 the timing chain broke a tooth which i didnt know about and the timing was automaically adjusted to compensate, BUT , the timing chain was bashing around inside and wore away most of its guides ect, which resulted in a top end rebuild pretty much, but i dont think a loose timing chain could make a hole !
