Hi moosestang,

I just did the solenoid test, to give you an update, I swapped them and the noise is still on the same bank. And anyways they were clean, no clogs. Unfortunately.

if they were causing the issue it was better, easier and cheaper to replace but I think the sprocket is gone

(thx for the actuator tip btw )
