1988 Dodge Raider timing chain reinstallation
Thanks very much for the help!
Grab your flashlight and look down the front of the engine along the chain.You will see the tensioner "shoe" popped out of the tensioner.Use a long thin screwdriver and alot of patience and push the shoe back in the tensioner while gently pulling up on the chain/top gear. When the needed length is gotten , pop the top gear back on. Be sure to verify timing marks so as not to damage the engine

Thanks for the advice. I have tried and tried and have not yet been successful. I have not taken the top sproket off the chain yet. If I mark the sprocket and chain, will removing the top sproket give me more room to get the tensioner back in its hole? Is this a good idea and will it help?
