hello george it looks like it might be easier to just pull the motor out and then replace timing chain and drop motor back in what do you think thank you douglas

I think is is half and half to do it that way.


This job has a book time of 7.5 hours so it is not easy by any means.


You do have the procedure to replace and time the chains?
