well if i do this job at the right time i would have a couple of extra hands to help, and i've got all the tools except that plastic guide you mention. i did find this on performance magazine's website...
this tool is suppose to make chain installation a one man job. i've studied on this job and engine but i'm having a bit of a problem figuring out how this functions.
that plastic tool you mentioned Peter where might i look at it. website???
but the key is once you've cracked the chain and attached the new chain to the old chain you keep it in contact with the cam gears right?
ain't this forum just great.
