    cam gear won't on / timing chain issue

    It was fine before I took the PTO off. The crank has been locked the entire time. Should I unlock it and try to unbind the chain or did something else happen

    yes, just undo the crank locking tool and twist crank enough to un bind the chain then re install crank locking tool in its hole again. Use Scer to move crank if no other means.

    SC is not in. It's not bound, I think. I think the chain somehow got behind that whatever it is sticking out near where the SCer goes in

    If you look where the chain is going on the left it's behind that item. When I put the plastic piece in it won't go because the chain is on that side. Should the chain be on the other side?

    I didn't put that much ass into it. I just don't understand how it got on the other side of that thing sticking out. Gotta be the garage gnomes
