    I am having an issue lining up the bolt to the hole on the new upper chain rail. See photo. The rail is clicked onto the rod next to FIP inside but rail seems too long.

    Can anyone advise please?

    Thanks

    Make sure you turn the engine over by hand at least twice to make sure nothing is amiss timing wise, don't want to find the cam timing is out and the valves meet the pistons at a fair rate.:eek::D

    Once had that on an engine years ago, its not pretty and cost a lot of money and time. Always air on the side of caution

    Yep will turn by hand a few times.
    Don't suppose anyone knows what torque they need to be tightened to?
    Couldn't find.

    Don't know but if they are going into ally then it won't be a lot. Use a little Loctite and nip them up rather than risk doing a DT on them!

    @RangeRoller dt

    Is the DT for Dangerously Tight or Destructively Tight?
