Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, am I safe to assume and reading you made marks and trying to go back to your marks? did you get or do you have a new chain?
Ok, bear with me so I can send information, Takes some typing and sending files so will return as quickly as possible
Ok, putting your own marks is sort of ok but not the correct way. You really should be steteing the chain per the repair manual as the links on the chain? you have colored links, yes. may be harder to find the colored links but will have to wipe down the links and look for colored links. This is why I asked about a new chain,. They are more pronounced. To answer about cam lobes? you can not go by this, 98% of engines the lobes are never straight up say on TDC #1. most times you will find lobes off to angles like 23-30 degrees. You are into the engine so I highly recommend back tracing and setting up the chain per the repair info from Nissan, What I have done is attached a file. A .pdf file for you to review, It may be more info than you need but this really needs to be followed. here is the link
we do not do that step Unsure why they even put that in there. Its a matter of all other steps and colored links on the chain. Ignore that. I know where you are going with this but.... you set chain on colored links, step by step.
