also now i can hear the noise less but can see what it is doing it looks like the pulley that has the CAS on it has little residue / particles of steel flickering from the pulley like its grazing some steel? over tensioned? shit job from previous owner?

Sounds like your covers are loose and rubbing on the cam wheel?.  The rubber locators on the bolts perish and fall off then the cover doesn't tighten up when you re install.  You have to get new rubbers or make up some rubber washers.

To get the lower cover off you need to take the top one off first.  But first try working around both covers and see where the bolt/rubber locations are and try tightening them or replacing the rubbers without taking them off.  Might save you a few hours if it works.

If you do have to take them off, check when your timing belt was last changed etc…..if its due then you can order a kit with pulleys and belt etc and do them at the same time - while you have the covers off.  While your there check the water pump for leaks etc...might have to replace it as well? Also the cam oil seals and maybe lower seal?
