2003 Discovery 2 SE7
I currently have my engine torn down to the block to do head gaskets after they blew on me. I figured while I was in there, I should replace as much as I can, so I took the front cover off to do the oil pump, which is a known problem on the 03 D2s. My oil pump is fine (I will be replacing it anyway), but I was having a look at the timing chain and noticed it was quite sloppy and has a lot of play in it. Being that there is no tensioner, I expect some play, but it seems excessive to me. The engine has 118k on it. Normally I would just do it, as the parts are cheap enough, but I’ve never done a timing job before and have none of the specialized equipment to do it. Thanks in advance for the advice.
