timing chain too tight

Recommended Posts

When reinstalling camshaft, the chain is too tight for the cam to slide into position (left bearing won't slide onto journal) Adjuster is all the way loose and the chain appears to be as loose as it can be. Can't figure this one out.

did you remove the compleet tensioner. and check if the chain is in place on the cranksprocket .probely the chain is doubled a tooth on this sprocket . there is a thinny piece of metal cald chaingiude but this is a weak thing . make this thing 2x stronger and with less freeplay to the chain will help a lot.

I haven't removed the stator cover to inspect yet, but I can kick it over. by holding the chain , it can spin on the crank gear. It seems to spin just fine on the crank gear. no kinks or restrictions. ?????
