It's out a heap. The specs say 0.6mm or something but this is 10mm.

Thanks, new chain and guides should fix it.

Lots of expenses in the new gaskets and seals needed for reassembly unfortunately though.

Have them inspected. If they need replacement, now is definitely the time! You’ll save quite a bit with the motor already out.

I'm not sure you can actually inspect the valve seals without probably removing them?

In that case you may as well just replace?

There has to be a way to see if they have hardened.

I've just had both front driveshafts and CV joints rebuilt to new specs for AU $360 which I think is pretty decent.

That should fix the slight vibration while driving at the front end

All parts now arrived. I picked up a few gaskets etc from FCPEuro on my last US trip so should be back together early next week.

It will be interesting to see if the new chain meets the 0.6mm spec (which I think is the intention of that spec. )

Next time you do a US trip you should definitely let all the fellow Aussies here know so we can put an order in!! Mateship at its finest
