    Timing chain

    Does anyone know about 79 620 steering components. I replaced the center like and set to the same length as the old and the passenger tire is really toed out while the driver side tire is straight. Maybe another part is damaged letting it wander out?

    Turns out the sound was the fan hitting the shroud at the bottom

    After I turned the crank bolt it tightened the chain so I figure I will start it back up and see if if the noise stops

    It I turn the motor over by turning it by the cam sprocket bolt instead of the crank pulley bolt will it cause slack in the chain?

    I installed the guides and tensioner so the chain was tight and I had someone look while I turned the motor and the chain was tight

    I checked that and it’s not hitting the chain

    I turned it like you said and there is slightly more slack when it turns

    I turned the motor clockwise and the slack is still there

    The sound is definitely comingFrom near the valve cover for the front of the head

    Well the motor turns clock wise so I can’t figure out why there would be slack in it when it’s not running

    Maybe it’s chain slap But I made sure I only turned the motor clock wise and it was tight on both sides and now it’s a little lose on the right

    The part that the fuel pump rest on, does it make a difference how it’s put on there. I know it’s offset.

    Maybe the chain was hitting the valve cover
