I have my new Cloyes gear set. I tested to make sure the gears would slide onto the shafts and that the dots align up with each other. I am still having some difficulty in getting the gears and chain to go on. I got the gears to align correctly and the chain in place but the chain seemed very tight and I could not get the cam gear to slid on, I put the cam bolt in place and finger tighten it and checked the alignment, both dots were together. The chain seems very tight to me. If I do manage to get the gear in place, the chain will be even tighter. I thought about using the cam bolt to help push the gear on; however, was not sure this was a good idea. I know the old chain had stretched a lot; there was play in the pins and between the links. Should the new chain be as tight as it seems to me; how much ... dang, can not think of the term, how much should the chain deflect when I push on it as the damper would push on it?
The new set is not going to go in place without some kind of force being applied, the chain is just too tight.
