you also must pry on the head a little once installed to do the initial install and prep for it to fully extend properly. should see it pop up a bit enough to take some slack out of the main chain

and make sure to rotate the engine clockwise only 4 revolutions to check TDC and all timing marks

Can I reuse my timing chain tension on a 2008 Chrysler 300 2.7 liter
