The timing chain came off the upper sprocket of my Yamaha 660 engine. Can you tell me how to put it back on and how to tighten the chain?

in between the bottom and top timing gears there is a tensioner pulley. to put it back on loosen the tension put the chain back on and then tension it again. to tight will cause the engine to idle high to low will cause it to idle low. also would recommend replacing timing chain and gears wile you're at it.

Xv535 cam chain jumped one tooth on cog,tensioner is fine ,so how did it happen,and how can i fix it

If all cogs and bearings are fine and that the chain tension is at specification then it should not be possible for the chain to ever jump a tooth. The amount of movement required by the chain to jump a tooth is considerable. I have only ever seen this as a result of an oversight when re-installing the chain after doing upper cylinder head work such as gasket replacement. Some models of vehicles with V6 engines that integrate the timing belt with driving the coolant pump can sometimes jump a tooth if the pump bearing fails. I would again check the chain tension once the timing chain is re-installed, even without tools you should be looking for a chain that is obviously taught. Not piano wire taught as this will lead to early failure but certainly one without any slackness or rattle. I have little experience of bike engines but the principles are the same

Would my timing chain on a 92 4cyl magna have an adjustable timing chain

no, once the chain is set there is no way to change it, unless you take it off and install a new one.The timing chain has tensioners that keep the tension by itself.I hope I could help rate me accordingly, Thanks!!

How to release the timing chain tensioner on a 1992 Mitsubishi Magna, so we can get the top timing sprocket back on the cam. Don't want to take front cover off. I am told it is a hydraulic tensioner. How...

if you use a torch you can see it down on the bottom. you need to use a long screwdriver to push on the lever, then lift the cam gear back on to the head.

My 1990 nissan sentra has a noisy timing chain when running idle.

Your timing chain tensioner is using oil pressure to stay tight.Could be your oil pressure is so low at idle the tensioner just can't stay tight.At the next oil change you could go for a thicker oil and see if the tensioner keeps the chain tighter at idle.

Mitsi Montera/Pajero/Magna 2.6 timing chain tension

The 'special bolt B' listed in the Haynes manual allows adjustment for the silent shaft chain, not the timing chain.
I don't know why there is a phillip head screw instead of a bolt.

Im changing head gasket on 1988 mitsu triton 2.6.have the head back on and i had the cam chain wheel under tension but i think it has slipped.i kept the cams and evrything in place nothin has moved cept...

a good idea to keep stuff from slipping is to put zip ties on the chain and cam gears so you dont have to question if it slipped or not,i would recommend finding the tensioner,relieve the tension and see if you can get it back on,it might not have slipped,just when you loosened the gears and took them off,the tensioner went full tension and its probably too much to just force the gears back in place-
