    If you had the ceramic washer failure I'd replace the chain regardless. You need to lock the cam and crank at #3 cylinder top dead center. I took a paint pin and put a mark on the timing chain and on the cam and crank sprocket. That way you can count the links on the old chain and mark the new chain so you can line up the marks on the sprocket with the marks on the chain.

    The Allen head on the side of the block is for the chain tensioner take it out and slide one chain guide out from the top. Just pull the crank down just enough to take the chain off.
    That should be about it
