Re: Gear Drive for the I6 ?
Ive seen a fair few broken chains and in all cases the broken chain jams and cranks the timing cover. If it has gone, your valves will be bent, sump will be full of broken plastic and metal from the chain/cover/guides, and a slim possibility of a cracked piston.
No gear drives available, and really no need. The timing chains are actually reliable and when you pull the engine down you tend to find that although the broken chain was the fatal blow it was caused by something else.
