      hard to see the guide, but have you opened the sump plate recently? Front cam chain guide rubber coming adrift will let the chain start chewing it's way through the aluminum guide.

        I did change oil recently and sump plate gasket cause it was leaking, but I just dumped oil didn't bother checking it for anything I've just recently started realizing that what you're saying is probably what's going on all signs point to it, now I've got to learn how to fix it seems like a big job, thanks for input
