Default Timing chain replacement ?

I have a 95 SE (god I should put this in my signature ) is there a write up on replacing the timing chain ?
Also do you need a eng. host to lift the motor of is there another way that will work ?
And does the motor need to stay lifted while I'm replacing the chain or can I lower it?
Thanks John

Well I'm going in to replace the crank & cam sensor and figure while i'm in there just do a a little PM plus the car just dose not have the snot it use to. It has over 130,000 and I believe in old school thinking that timing chains need to be replaced.

This might be useful..... but there are some other problems mixed in. Keep in mind that Damemorder has a Series 1 and you have a Series 2; I don't know if there are fundamental differences in changing the timing chain or not.
