OK guys i,am working on a 351W( It's now 393) the timing chain is way to loose. They make a line bore set for Chevy but have not found one for ford. Now i have the part number off the ford chain and a part number off a Chevy -.005 chain they are the same so i guess the deferents in the line bore sets is in the gears. Comments ?

While I don't know this for a fact, my machinist background tells me that it would be much easier to make a sprocket a little larger than trying to make a special chain .XXX shorter.

Next question is who makes what you need? :-k

Ken,
I agree with what you are saying but you at one time could by a .005 or .010 shorter chain from Manley.

Beretta,
This engine was built by another shop it only had 1500 miles on it and i,am re doing it. I can,t remember if it was loose on that engine or not.

With Cloyes, the difference is with the gears. The chains are identical when it comes to align honed blocks.

I ended up getting one from SA Gears you have to watch the chains you get with them. The chains made in Japan Are junk they stretch Iwis are the best and are pre stretched.
