randycat99 Where's the guy that was on his 2nd (or 3rd?) chain repair? If that guy gets this recall repair and can still lose his chain, that will be the true test for the new parts...

randycat99 Thanks, KentuckyWaterfall! Yes, would be real nice if we could get some picture samples from you. It's not that hard. Just go to the Quick Reply place, but use the Go Advanced button, below it. That will open a whole new page, where you will see the typing window, and the somewhere below it, a button to "manage attachments". That is how you attach your pics to your reply.

Emaxxnitro Got the car back this morning, seems to run a tad bit smoother when MDS kicks in and the hemi tick is less noticeable. I have not had the chance to inspect the car for leaks.

Meanwhile, why not sign up and find out a bunch of other awesome information about your car!". Without fail 5 comments later, someone will ask the same question, 'What about my V6, I heard they fail too!".
I hate to be too blunt, but generally, most people are just trained to be stupid. They want instant gratification and answers instantly. They are just too lazy from this mindset to do much, if any research...............like reading a thread, so they can, with some intelligence, make comments that make sense with what's going on with the subject matter.

No shortage of "twits" these days. LOL

FYI.....Harley Davidson has been using a Nylon Guide in their Primary Cases for years with little to no issues. I worked on many Harleys and they all show this little bit of wear until the chain seats itself onto the guide.

As an automotive designer with 29 years experience myself, this statement needs to be clarified/corrected: "I will never know what the intent or expectation was from the designer." The fact is the designer designs the part in 3D with input from his Engineer. It is the Engineer with the Engineering Degree that determines the material. The designer just does the modeling of the part, creating the drawing, adding the GD&T, releasing the part into the PLM system. The Engineer is responsible for making sure ALL of that information on the drawing is correct!

if you have NOT worked in the automotive design field, you would not know this.
