    You would have to manually turn the cams by hand.

    non interference motor, should be able to bring number one up to TDC, line the cams up and replace the chain, of course its not just that easy, but not the hard either

    Dang!! That sucks. I've never heard of timing chains breaking on such a regular basis until this year. Hopefully it's just a replace the chain and go. This is starting get get closer to my 08 SHO. I thought it was just the SVHO engines that came with the bad chains.

    I just replaced the chain in my SVHO to be on the safe side. I had it cryogenic treated.

    easy peasy big john is right. Not exactly easy, but not exactly hard either. You will be shocked at how simple it really is and how much you will learn about your ski along the way. You could have that out and back in a few hours tearing ass on the water.

    Me thinks we only hear about so many more chains breaking because now people know they can come online and talk about it. Its the age of technology, anyone from grandpa to a 8 year old can come on here and talk about their problems.
