i know it has a timing chain not a belt, i just want this thing to last me for a long time, i bought it from a friend who owned since 60xxx and they never did any maintenence at all, one time the fan broke so they replaced the radiator and fan and belt, then about 150xxx the rear diff locked up so they replaced that with a used one, other than that nothing has been done, i figured the chain is good but i thought maybe it would be a good idea to replace it with a tensioner and guides or whatever else is inside there, i dont think i need to take the timing cover off to do the water pump? but i wanted to do a few things like that all at once since tax return time is coming up. but i guess it doesnt need to everyone is pretty stern on these engines being "bullet proof" so i guess im just over thinking eberything.
