In Reply to: replacing timing chain posted by yiorgos on June 15, 2000 at 08:00:22:
: the cost & effort to do this myself made me, initially, to consider using a split type chain as opposed to the closed one originally installed. On second thought I realized that my peace of mind @ 7000rpm dictated doing the job properly and decided to & change the whole works: chain, rails, tensioners, cam sprockets, tensioner plunger seals etc.
: Upon opening the front cover I realized that the 'god of drifting' must have been protecting me & mi baby somehow.
: To cut a long story short, the condition of the chain tensioners/sliders was really bad & completely justified the expense & efford involved renewing them.
: In my opinion this is not a job to cut corners. Take your time & do it properly.
: e.mail me if you want any details of the job.
