Rover, Rover, this is John Paul... in harms way
Santa is all done shopping here so, got a little time and began the auxiliary chain replacement chapter.
I have removed the tension-er bolt and tension-er, have loosened the oil sprocket bolt until it has touched the inside of the sump.
Now, looking at the clearance around the fuel sprocket, wondering if the chain will indeed clear enough to be able to remove the chain. Or does/can the fuel sprocket be removed?

Any reason why you are removing the chain?

Well, it came with the 2 timing chains and tension-er. Unfortunately I turned the crankshaft left instead of right briefly and the chain has skipped a few teeth on the fuel sprocket, and the marks on the existing chain do not line up now with the crankshaft marks.

Happy Christmas!

With the tensioner spring loose. Take a small screwdriver and lift the chain over and around on the sprocket to where the alignment marks are.

Did U say Attack Plan R? Hopefully being in there tomorrow, might be 50 round here, gonna also try shimming the whole chain off towards the front, outside of the sprocket. Considering cutting the oil pump bolt to swap out that sprocket.

Merry New Year!

Happy New Year:

I cut the oil pump bolt for the sprocket and removed the sprocket and bolt, that chain aint coming off without opening that chain so, looking at the new chain and notice besides the two links marked for the crank and fuel sprockets there is an obvious black link. Thinking of opening and replacing the chain and being done with it. The tool,

Land Rover Jaguar 5.0 3.0 Fuel Pump Camshaft Aligner Alignment Timing Tool Kit | eBay

is for supercharged engines only, I was wondering why the &^%$ I could not apply it.

Onward thru the fog!
