You are 100% correct I think we need some accomodation.
The guy has done alot of work for me prior to this. I was going to take it down to Donnie in Atlanta to get the chain done but figured after reading a great deal about the install it can't be that difficult. ( I defy you to find a Post on the Board that talks about Valve bending on timing chain installs)
It is my stupidity that cost me major bucks.
Gotta think this is my last stop at this shop!
