Hey Keralis. I'm curious, what is so toling on the specialty tools? I thought they were just locking tools to prevent movement?You must buy a good quality tool. Timing on this engine is horrible. From people I have talked to, apparently the job is so tolling on the tools, they must be replaced every 5 or so jobs.
PM me with any questions about the engine including assembly/disassembly. I have access to a full highly detailed workshop manual for this engine. I am not legally supposed to attach it on the internet.
I recently bought a 2012 RR SC with 106K miles on it. So I knew the timing chain guides would eventually need replacement. The other day it started ticking pretty bad, and got worse. Happened more sudden than I thought it might, but alas, I'm 95% the timing chains are the issue. I'm fairly handy with most automotive work including some engine rebuild experience (2008 Lancer evo).
I cannot find many DIY guides or videos on this procedure. Anyone have a parts list, or a DIY guide that I'm missing? I've been searching a lot on this forum, youtube, FFRR, etc.
Any info/tips are appreciated!
