    Default Anyone know how to fit timing chains? 2.2

    I am right in the middle of fitting my timing chain and balance shaft chain but the help I was getting have gone out, so I am now stuck . How am I doing, have I went wrong some place? Mine does not seem to line up like the one I was show in the picture. I have fitted the balance shaft chain and I need to know if it's ok. I then need to fit my timing chain and I need a little guidance. Cheers for any info. I just don't want to go wrong

    More info on my full work here with pictures:

    This is how it should look, but if you notice on my work the cogs are a little different to this picture:




    This is the first ever job on an engine I have done. I wanted to learn though

    it is easy going do you have a haynes manual because it shows it everything you just have to make sure the number 1 piston is in the right position the new timing chain has three different colour links just line them up with the bottom sprocket and the cam sprockets.
    did you buy the genuine vauxhall kit because it comes with new sprockets bolts and tensioner guides and a new tensioner
    hope this helps i had to replace mine after i took mine to a garage i bought mine from autovaux good price just paid the garage to fit only, picked the car up next day then went to nottingham on the return home it snapped just out side of sheffield not a happy bunny
    went to the garage next day my parts still on the shelf i replaced the chain myself took about 4 hours after i got my head back after i had to have all 16 valves replaced just take your time also put some silicone on the bottom gasket mine leaked had to remove everything to take everything off again hope this is some help

    Yes I got mine from Vauxhall, I got both chain kits. I can't find my Haynes manual so I am stuck a little. I have given up for tonight as it's dark now . I can't wait to finish it off. Before I started mine I had a leak from the gasket on that side. I have a torque wrench to get it tight enough, so will I still need some silicone? Cheers
