Re: Poly timing chain cover removal



Bill I had the exact same issue with my replacement tube in that it was too tight. I sanded on it  to thin it down but never got it to easily insert. I put a flaring tool insert into the tube to prevent the tip from flattening and carefully but persistently hammered it into place. I was not satisfied with the fit so that's when I J B Welded it in at the base just for good luck. I had cleaned the block hole thoroughly too. 

The timing chain should always be replaced. You don't want to have to take it apart again later. I used a NAPA #10-3028X which is a 3 piece adj-a-hex and cost me $51 a couple years ago. It is the Cloyes unit.

I bought a "repro" dipstick & tube from Moparts (I think?). I had to grind down the OD of the part that inserts into the block to get it to fit...and it was still tight. Ended up trashing a dead blow hammer trying to install it!! I ended up not getting it all the way in and will have to either destroy it to get it back out, or cut the top end off the appropriate amount to adjust the length.

Should be the same as LA 318. Some people like the ProGear from Hughes, and it is made in USA.
