Default Timing Chain Noise Fix/Tutorial

I've gotten so much from this website. Many helpful members so I figured I'd contribute to the site for once(and by contribute I mean post links of someone else's work )A mechanic/YouTuber by the name of 2012nugget recently posted a video tutorial on how to fix the timing chain guide issue. The tutorial is broken up in to two videos. (I informed him that I'd be posting it here)

It SEEMS pretty straight forward but then again this is what he does for a living. My car is suffering from this problem luckily I have a friend who will assist me in tackling the issue in the warmer months.

Maybe it'd be better if these videos were posted in EddyMaxx's sticky?

Default Re: Timing Chain Noise Fix/Tutorial

Although this guy has pretty much the basics covered in the video, i don't much agree with his chain method where "don't touch the chain, were gonna leave it as it is and put it there as it was." I prefer to put my timing at top dead center and then remove the chain, because then i can use the marks on the chain itself and the sprockets to be sure that i got the timing right, instead of guessing, or using my own marks which can disappear if not made properly.

Also, its not really straightforward. That's what i though when looked at threads before i started this job. It gets quite funny later down the line when you get frustrated, even more when you're doing this job without pulling the engine out.
