    Worn Timing Chain and Adjusting Timing

    How to remove the timing chain?

    So about 3 years ago I picked up a 91 80 series with the 3fe. I've always loved these land cruisers but never had one till then. It gave me tons of problems with not starting right and I knew nothing about the different engines or locker options. I been searching ever since to get a 93+ with...
