• Why would a timing chain stretch?

November 2019 Forum Retirement
Due to lack of extra personal time (and too much spam), I'm retiring the forum and setting it to a read-only state. No new registrations or posts will be accepted as of 11/09/19. However, all information will stay up and searchable. If you spend a few minutes searching, you'll find the answers you're looking for. We may re-open the forum next spring.

I posted a few days below and got no responses....
I bought 2 yerf's spies boxes and both had stretched timing chains?
Is this common? What would cause it?
I did the timing on both and set the tensioner the correct way and the chains on both are very loose!

they just do ,,, lack of good lubrication could also cause this
