Having a tough timing setting the camshaft timing. Appears tensioner (now replaced) allowed chain to skip one position.
I'm now resetting camshaft position (picture attached) and can't get within +/- 10 degrees from crankshaft TDC. Intake side positioner has a little rotational play in it (probably +/- 2 degrees), exhaust side has no play. How much play is too much?

Or could it be the timing chain is stretched? And how can you tell? Or am I missing some other trick?

Thanks

Barry
