Been awhile since I've been on here. Had trouble with my truck in April of 2009, and haven't been able to drive it since. See this earlier thread if you want background: http://www.thetruckstop.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10347 Anyway, now that it is warmer and I have more time on my hands, I want to get it running again. It's been suggested my timing chain may have jumped a tooth or two or has stretched. I have never checked/replaced a timing chain nor seen it done. I've searched on here to see if someone has done a writeup, but couldn't find anything. I have the Haynes manual for the truck, but it only shows gassers. So if someone could post a step by step on how to check the timing chain and also, if it needs replacement, how to replace, I would be grateful. If you could let me know what parts need to replaced (whether just checking or replacing) such as gaskets, etc. and if bolts can be reused or if I need to use new ones. Also, if there are other parts that would be wise to replace during a timing chain swap, I'd like to know that too. Thanks. I miss my truck. Looks pretty sitting in the driveway, but I miss the sound and driving it.
