    Default timing chain on 2.2 direct 05 plate vectra

    i have had the timing chain go on my vectra a few days ago. the mechanic had a look at it today and luckely its not very bad news!! no damage has been done to the piston etc(visually anyway!!).The secondary and the main chain are very very slack.
    can anyone advice what kit i should get and also he is having difficulty getting the tool for it.where can we get one from??

    Get the Gen kits from the dealers mate. I take it by "tool" you mean the cam locking tool? There not cheap but I you can put 2 spanners on the cams and lock them together with mole grips. This pic shows none standard cams so he had to use mole grips for them all.



    Timing marks.







    Balancer chain timing marks.
