Default 99 ranger 4.0 prob

was consideing purchasing a 99 ranger, fairly cheap for all that comes with it.. the guy says one thing is wrong with it, so Ill leave it for you all to decide what cause I dont know. this is what the post says

"The motor has a high-pitch squeal and I've had several people tell me it's a clogged push rod or lifter."

anyone have any other ideas, or a remedy for this problem.

how about the rear counterbalance chain? They can squeal like a stuck pig against the plastic cassette it rides in
