    engine rebuild

    So we have all the parts in and start the engine build-up tomorrow. I'm still a little nervous about setting the timing chain on a 3.6l LY7 motor. I've read both the sticky's but my motor is a 2004 and not sure if it is the same as the ones in the other posts.
    So if I put the pistons at TDC on #1 then I guess thats how the pictures of setting the timing chain are oriented??? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!

    Re: engine rebuild

    go back and read the thread..... it's not like the old 4 bangers. You have to set the engine to stage I alignment then align the left chain, and primary, then stage II alignment to do the right side chain. You can go back and verify it with TDC after. I suggest downloading the shop manual, and doing a full read through on teh section. then read the stickies to clarify the alignment as the manual diagrams are kinda funky
