Posts: 1,141 your chain worn or broken?

If it's broken- you'll be pulling heads and replacing the bent valve(s). I might suggest- only factory chain rails and buying a wsis chain(OEM). I'm sure there is plenty of detail on the list for triming the chain rail.

Might mention that you'll need some specialty tools to lock the camshafts.. never tried it without.

If you've broken a rail and the chain- then you'll need to pull the pan to remove the debris.
