timing chain set

Post by loman »

Local parts store ordered me in a timing chain set for a 289 and it was wrong. I believe it is for a 64 or early 65 motor because the cam gear is doesn't have a raised hub on it like the one that I removed. I thought those timing chain sets required some spacer behind the gear to prevent from rubbing on cam thrust plate. The parts store was having a heckuva time trying to find the right one. I walked out and said I would be back later. Does anyone have a part number for a timing chain set for 289 from Napa? This is just a plain jane 289 2 bbl going into my white 65 that I started playing with again.

When were you going to tell us about this? :P I haven't seen any pictures :roll:

Sorry I am no help on the 289.

Lol, your right Mike. I got some pics from this weekend. I'll try to get them posted later today.

For what its worth, Oreilly's is telling me the timing chain set is special order. :shock: . Then Auto Zone tells me they have to ship one in, it would be several days. Who would have ever thought that a timing chain set for a SBF would be anything more than walking in store and picking one up.

Probably the same people that decided the engine was just a component to change out never rebuild :roll: they want you to buy new and not fix.

Loman we are now old enough to sit around the coffee shop and talk about how folks used to rebuild stuff and go fast stuff was not a computer chip.

See Ya,
