: Timing chain routing??

12-31-08, 01:03 AM
Getting ready to set timing and put the motor back in my car (:highfive:) but I need a diagram for the timing chain setup..

Anyone have one?.. 1999 Cadillac DeVille Base, VIN Y.

Thanks in advanced....

In the future, feel free to start your own thread, instead of tacking it onto a 5+ year old, semi related one.

Can't they only go on one way? IIRC, each sprocket has 2 holes/slots for the pin in the cam to go through. 2 sprockets say RI and RE, and the other 2 say LE and LI.

L = left
R = right
I = intake
E = exhaust.

You put the pin through either the I or E hole depending on which can you're installing it on.

I'm confused. Why post the question in the first place in a thread that already has the answer? :hmm:

joser, You might want to look at Post #3. There are three (3) timing chains and it takes cam locks to get everything in alignment with Cylinder 1 at TDC so you can install the sprockets, retract the 3 tensioners, set the chains, and unlock the tensioners. Did you replace the tensioner shoes and the chain guide slippers ? Oil everything.
