Default Rubbing sound inside timing cover???

Like the title says. It recently just started. It goes away when I apply slight pressure to the top of the timing cover. Any ideas anyone? I'm super new to owning a Samurai and even newer to working on y own rigs. Any and all help would be appreciated. Shawn

Heat and oil cause the cover to slightly warp. The rubbing is common.

This might a super redundant question. But, is it a serious problem? Shawn

Not really. It really doesn't do much but keep dust and road debris away from the belt.

Another thing that happens is the rubber grommets that hold the top metal back cover deteriorate and let the cover shift forward.

Sorry or the late thank you. I can see the metal backing that the over is bolted to has slipped forward. I bent it back and seems to not be rubbing any longer. Now if I can only fix my ignition issues. Shawn
