New to the forum but been browsing for a while! had my 57 cooper s for about 2 months now and as of today and yesterday there has been a new/louder rattle from the engine.
it has a tensioner replaced two years ago, is it likely that it has just become weak and can be fixed by replacing it? took it to the garage who refused to see it till next week, and im supposed to travel 350miles down south on friday and the same back on monday and id much rather have it solved before i make a journey like that!
Any thoughts on what it could be/how to fix would be greatly appreciated!

It could be the timing chain aka the death rattle which is a common failure on this model, I would go to the main dealer and buy a tensior (tq to 80nm). And re-test it, If the rattle is still there and it's coming from that chain side, you want to remove the rocker cover and check if the top guide was smashed up cause it happens rather often and can cause such a noise. But that is it being the chain that the rattle is from.

Hope I can help
