Really know how to wind people up . This is why I'm doing the chain with less than 18k miles on the clock, for piece of mind.

Rob, I would wait a couple of days and not use the car if you can and then get RG or Dynotech as soon as possible. Both are good traders! and for parts and labour will probably be less than half the price the stealers want!

To all the above, when doing this, double check you're getting the LATEST chain and not just a new old stock chain, they've changed......
New type at bottom:




Any good trader will do this but wouldn't put it past to palm you off with an old style one

Would've but IGT were fitting rods so got them to do it as the timing cover had to come off anyway, wasn't stretched but was done for peace of mind...
The main thing is getting the timing cover to seal properly as you have to squeeze it back between the underside of the cylinder head.
It's NOT a doddle to do, but not the end of the world (Unless you're a Mayan)
