hey guys, i think the timming chain in my el is rubbing? it doesn't sound lose, it sounds more like a rub, i will record the sound once mum has returned with my car from getting things so we can finish the extactors on her BA,

is there a way i could fix this with out having to pull the motor out and rebuild or overhaul the timming chain

Could be rubbing on one of the timming guides, top guide could have snapped under wear n tear, you could take the rocker cover off and see if the chain has any slack in it.

as for rebuilding/overhauling it can be done in the engine bay but is a real pain,

to be able to get clear accses to the bottom end you need to remove the radiator and all the accessories,

No engine mods is p plate legal.
Cam chip and other things that are harder to pic are sneaky mods.
It is possible o do the timing chain and guides In car but the bottom guide is a hastle. Especially if it falls in the sump.......
Any other symptoms? Chain rattle at high rpm.?

I'd just rebuild the head, heavy valve springs, cam, chip, vernier cam gear.
Blueprinting costs a fair wack.
You've probably just snapped a guide, very very common
