Customer Question

I have sucsessfully replaced my engine which is a 450 SLC unit, with a new timing chain. Having set the cam gears and the crank the TDC position I have also correctly fitted the rails and the tensioner
and setting the intermediate sprocket to the correct alignment. In raising the engine and turning the engine through severall revolutions and stopping at the TDC position The only
thing out is the intermediate sprocket which becoms out of alignment I cannot see what
the problem is.
