    It’s not horrible but I see what you mean. I guess I can look forward to it really start singing when that chain loosens up a bit.

    New timing set installed. Iv got my doubts about running without a tensioner, but the truck already has 175k. Changed the oil and filter a couple times to make sure it was debris free. Let it warm up once and the radiator cracked. It looked like it had been a long time coming. So replaced the...

    Honestly I wouldn’t have considered going aftermarket on a deep part until I saw the engineering of GMs tensioner. I love my GMs, but I think I’d rather roll the dice on aftermarket than put in a part that looks like it should come with a choking hazard warning.

    Right on! I just pulled it, and sure enough it was plugged. I’m picking up the timing kit today and it comes with a new one. I read somewhere GM updated that galley port, hopefully that’s what the kit comes with. It’s the Cloyes tensioner delete set. <one less thing

    My neighbor suggested I check the timing chain. Sure enough the timing tensioner imploded and it progressively jumped 3 teeth. I can’t believe there’s enough sway in parameters to keep it running! Also the fact that it didn’t throw anything about crank position or cam position is frustrating..

    Well I checked the engine end of the cat, and it was intact, but because I welded the rear connection I couldn’t look through it. So I just left it off to make sure it wasn't causing the issue.

    Driving to work and noticed once I got on the highway I was having trouble getting up to 60. So I drop it in 3rd and as soon as I dump the clutch the engine cuts out like I hit the rev limiter or governor. Back to 4th to dog it out, not enough power for 5th and I’m late for work. 5 miles later...
