    Quick opinion on timing chain, ordering parts

    My ski is an 04 gtx about 180 hours on it had sc failure and split the case to clean it all. About to put it all together and was wondering should i replace the timing chain? It isnt too sloppy but im already in there. I think they are 70 and im replacing my starter even though it works but its so corroded i dont want to deal with it when the engine is all together. Thanks

    it would be foolish to not put a new timing chain in if the entire engine was apart. far simpler to change a bad starter after the fact then to replace the timing chain.

    ten minutes to change the chain now..or hours to change it later..if you are lucky enough not to hose the engie if it lets go.

    I would personally only use an OEM chain. Just my opinion.
