New to the forum :cool:

I have done some reading in the forums and I have come to the conclusion that the L34 engine has been the toughest to learn about.....

Recently picked up a 2000 tracker off a friend...346,000 km and still going...
Though about changing the timing chain (never been done) but decided to compression test it first...

190psi #1, 165psi on 2&3, and 30 psi on #4 piston :eek:
wet testing yielded only 5psi more, so I am going to go with bad valve...

I am hoping for some help in finding some info on parts and gasket sets.

Also, can anyone point me in the right direction when indexing TDC with overhead cams and setting the chain back up?

Thanks in advance (any input at all will be very helpful):D

Welcome! :)

I assume that you have the 2.0 liter 4-banger, so the "sticky" thread at the top of this section for the J20 engine has the timing chain info that you seek.

Thanks for that....

I just came across an old thread "1999 Tracker Timing Chain" and having gone through it, I have decided that my Tracker is not worth the investment in time or money....

It will be on Toronto Kijiji for $500 by tomorrow night....

Will be looking for a Grand Vitara.....
