Sounds like they either have you the wrong guide, or they changed the teeth up or made it better they did that to me on a different part. Make sure they gave you the right part

Hopefully you have the old part so you can check it with the new one to make sure it is an identical match. Where you got it, check to see if there are more than one gear for your vehicle. Chevy is known for changing parts in the middle of a run during the same year, so you need to go by vehicle serial number when ordering some parts.

Did you change the Timing and Crank Gears with the Chain?
