    2.1 hrs for a cdti 8v??? Who's doing that?? Stevie Wonder?? 40 mins easy with a fag break.
    Back on topic, why are you changing the chain?? If I were you I'd just change the tensioner plunger first as they work on oil pressure and can get crudded up, Its only a half hour job rather than 4 hours to change the chain.

    Agree on timings; took timings from Autodata as a comparison
