HELP!!! Head change dramas...
I'm currently putting a new head on my EA and i've run into a bit of a problem.
Basically, the timing chain seems too loose... (See attached pics).
We are sure the timing tensioner is working, so this isn't the problem.
One theory we have, is that due to the increased compression (head has been decked 40 thou, and using AU head gasket), is that the tensioner can no longer take up the slack in the chain. Could this be the case??
Everything was fine with my old head, yet as soon as we put the new one on, the problem started straight away.
If it is just a case of the tensioner not being able to make up the slack, then we were thinking we could just pack it out a bit with some spacers. Can anyone see a reason why this wouldn't work?
