You have to loosen the adjuster first that takes the slack out of the chain. you then have to remove bothe the cam sprocket and the crank sprocket at the same time . you do this by removing the index bolt and the remainder of bolts. this should do the trick

Water in spark plugs


Is the plug really clean? That usually means the cylinder head gasket failed. You would need to remove the cylinder head. (valve cover, intake manifold, timing belt/chain) clean off the mating sufaces, inspect mating sufaces for truness, possibly have them machined, install new head gasket, bolt down head to correct tourque, reinstall timing belt/chain, intake manifold, (install all new gaskets) and valve cover. It's a lot harder than it sounds, usually. Call at least 4 local mechs for a quote to replace head gasket on your car. Just a gasket kit alone could cost 90 to 300 bucks depending on your model. This is a major job. Google head gasket and your model and year , you may fiind youtube videos for you exact model or similar.

I have a 1987 Dodge Ram 50 sport 2.6 litre the head gasket is blown how do i get the timing chain off to replace the gasket


You have to remove the oil pan - harmonic balancer - timing cover to replace timing chain... to replace cylinder head gasket and not the chain -- you need an assistant to hold the camshaft gear with chain on it. Suspending it with wire to keep the chain from moving the timing (do not let the chain relax as it will come off the crankshaft gear and change the timing)

Blown head gasket


It may be easier to remove the engine to get to everything you have to remove to replace a head gasket on this model. It has a timing chain that has to be removed then the intake then the exhaust manifolds then the effected head.

WHEN REPLACING THE HEAD GASKET.


Yes, the chain has to come off. The cam gear that is driven by the chain is mounted on the cam, inside the head, and the crank pulley down at the bottom is what drives it via the chain. The chain has to be removed in order to remove the head.

Usually the pulleys are mounted onto their shafts with a bolt through the center of each pulley. That will have to be loosened and removed (which is much easier if it's loosened before you remove the chain, so that the chain holds the pulley still and keeps it from moving). My question is, why do you need to remove the pulley? Once the chain is off, and everything else is disconnected, the head will lift off with the pulley intact, and the crank pulley doesn't need to come off as it has nothing to do with a head gasket service. Is there another issue that requires the pulley to come off, or are you replacing the head with one whose cam pulley is missing?
