Plastic Chain Guide Rail Removal Advice Needed


Recommended Posts

I am stuck removing the chain guide in fear of damaging the head gasket. I found the hex head behind the upper dowel pin and backed that out as much as I felt I could. But the plastic chain rail is post-39695-13693479477846_thumb.jpgpost-39695-13693479644994_thumb.jpgpost-39695-13693479883429_thumb.jpgpushing hard against the head gasket and the pin hasn't fully come out yet. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

If you end up cutting the head gasket, avoid cutting near the head/block.  That area is tough to seal on a good gasket.  I would separate it in the front as it is easier to use formagasket there with success.



You may need to cut it if you want to replace it.  But I would try to bend it up more.
