Finally got the new timing chain installed this past weekend. It was a painful job. I had to use an engine hoist to get some clearance order to remove the oil pan.
I know what you mean about the oil dipstick tube. I cut it with a hex saw so I can remove the oil pan. My question now is what would be bad if the dipstick tube is 4" shorter. Can I just leave it alone 4" short like that?? I didn't want to go thru the pain of replacing it if I can get away with it.
So please anyone... Can I get away with this? I need all your advices.
