Hello there,

Are you replacing chains for noise or codes set, or did one break?

Here is the timing diagram:

I have diagram, but not sure, 1 mark is for in and 2 for 2nd crank l or r
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 8 months ago

The three chains have 3 marks each.

Each one can only go on one way.

The bottom chain goes on first.

The two secondary chains are identical.

I mean there is R And L on crank pully. Chain will be go on which mark. And 2nd pully mark will be on IN OR L. Bcz chain was broken I need to set crank
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 8 months ago

You had a broken chain?

The engine stopped from this?

You will have many bent valves, no point in going any further with new chain fitment.

Cylinder heads need to come off.

A second hand engine will cost less.
