Lower Timing Chain Slack
Finally....after a 2 week vacation break (comprising a 7 day Rhine river cruise..followed by a three day stay in Amsterdam)....then starting a new job....I was finally able to get back to business. New lower timing chain arrived today and after fitting it...I finally have an answer to the question..."how much slack is in a new chain?". The photos show the old ....with slack (or droop) of 0.231" (5.9 mm) from straight...versus the new with a slack of 0.105" (2.7mm). Is this that critical when all is said and done? maybe not so much on this completely mild engine rebuild.
