Hi Shantal, I am still needing some advise as what to do or how to install my timing chain correctly. The variable advance and retard adjuster has proven to be part of my problem, none of the local macanics are able to help as this problem seems to be a bit out of there league. Help help help, I have not driven this car for nearly 2 months and only owened it for 2 days when the oil pump clogged up from lack of service from the previous owner.
