I had the motor out already because it had a broken rear timing chain cassette, and I put the motor back in after replacing it, it wouldn't start so I opened up the front cover to the 3 chains in front , and it had front chain guide broken also, I replaced it but I'm sure it's still out of timing, im wondering if I have to take the whole motor back out? Please help!!!
