Not the Spacely Sprocket? Maybe time to upgrade to a Cogsworth Cog.

Sorry mate, couldnt resist, figured your old enough to remember The Jetsons.. Try PMing Soxx, he's got a tonne of knowledge about this stuff.

Re: help help desperate help

You must release the cam chain tensioner, then you will be able to get the sprocket in. Even then its tight and I had to take apart my veriner gear fit it to the cam and then the chain and then bolt it back together.

Dont forget you need to keep the chain on the bottom sprocket and the engine on TDC still so the vernier is near right when you bolt it together.

Have you got a dial guage to time it in though?

Definately the Adjuster/tensioner, you will have to take the Power steering pump off to take it out.

Yeh the big hammer works.

Thats how I "took out" my first lifter, the one I had to replace!

Re: help help desperate help

I too had to replace one of my lifters, but not because I took it out with a hammer. No, this lifter fell straight out all by itself. So I moved the car to look on the ground and realised I ran over it. LOL.
