Thanks Larry, I thought that was right
I can't say I've heard of any other way to install a timing chain than to crimp it in place. I would however like to figure out or have someone explain to me how you can figure timing chain stretch. I always hear or read about degrees that the chain is retarded the engine, but with no indicators on either the cam gear or the lower timing marks, how can someone do an educated guess as far as how many degrees their chain is off? I don't have incremental marks on either end of my engine, so how can I tell.
