Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi there, I Am Cam. Can I get your first name please?Have you run the engine yet or are you just assembling the engine?
Jay, what brand of chains and tensioners did you install?
Did you have any troubles seating the tensioners then pushing it in to release them?
Also what is your oil pressure?
OK, I have run into this before with aftermarket timing parts. Either the chains slightly too long, loose or tensioners. I hate to say it but either the release pins is still in the tensioner or they or the chains are bad. Your going to need to get back in there and put Ac Delco ones in there or even the original ones. There is nothing wrong with reusing them. Only the chains were prone to failures.
Is there more Ic an get you Jay?
