Looking for some pointers on doing the timing components on this lr4. I will be buying all the special tools needed. Just like to know if anything to lookout for. Thanks in advance

Just plan on replacing all the plastic coolant pipes. One across the back of heads and one under intake And the thermostat housing. If they aren’t leaking already they are on borrowed time.

Assenmacher's timing tool set is an improvement on the factory tool which saves a bit of time in tensioning the chains…
