    I have a bit of a theory I want to run by you. For what I remember the chain in tensioned by oil pressure using the tensioner. When you're turning your engine with a remote start I don't...

    A few questions. Is the miss still there? Did you break in your new engine properly? What shape is the radiator (and cap) in? I would start with the obvious, pull the plugs and see what's...
