Subject: 84 900 engine rattle

I am getting a rattling sound from the engine at certain rpm while accelerating. It happens right after I start moving (~1200rpm), and then again shortly before I shift (~2800rpm). The exhaust system is mostly new and solid, so I don't think it's a bracket or the heat shield. The engine sounds fine cruising along at 2500rpm or 3000rpm. Any suggestions for what to check? I'm hoping it's not the timing chain!! Thanks, -jw -- 1984 900 S hatchback 150K miles
