Re: EA timing Chain

Do you have a workshop manual?

Basically the spockets need to be lines up as follows

The lines on the Aux drive ( larger sprocket ) and crank sprocket need to be in line with each other AND the cam sprocket line has to be horizontally aligned with the top of the head on the right when looking at it from the front of the car

Be worth checking to make sure engine is on TDC of firing stroke ( should be if it only skipped one tooth ) turn the engine over by hand numerous amount of time to make sure everything lines up each time it does a full cycle, be sure to keep some pressure on the tensioner guide so chain doesnt skip again.

A few notes before putting it back together

What work have you done? While you have it apart, replace chain and guides, check crank sprocket for play ( if it rocks side to side replace it and the crank woodruff key if need be )

Re: EA timing Chain

If it has jumped there's way too much wear or slack in chain.You need a new chain and tentioner kit..Around $100.00

I just put a new head back on it and everything went well except I accidently forgot to tighten the bolt that holds the top sprocket to the camshaft which has caused the chain to skip a link.
