: Timing Chain Slack

07-24-08, 04:43 PM
Starting to put my N* back together and i have the timing chains set right but at a certain point while turning the engine over the secondary chains go slack and have some play in them.But the rest of the time the chain is tight. I have taken them apart and tried to get rid of the play but cant. The play is on the the opposite side of the tensioner. Is play normal?:hmm:

Nevermind. The tensioners will tighten up more when the engine is running.

Just make sure you have released the lever on the tensioner. Also, push hard with your hand and you may be able to get the tensioner to extend another click. The last thing you want to happen is to have one or both of the chains to slip a tooth when starting the engine!
