Re: Timing chain routing??
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.
