On the problem of the timing chain

Post by pantiancai » Sun Apr 29, 2018 4:04 pm

Hello everyone
Ask a question about timing chain elongation
An 11-year VW CC equipped with EA888's engine, we did a normal maintenance for him and replaced the defective timing chain. Before that, I measured its CKP CMP with pico 4225 (Idle speed and removed the camshaft position adjustment. ()), CMP lags behind the CKP's 14th tooth by about 1.7 degrees. I replaced the timing chain lag and I measured again. At this time, the CMP is 1.4 degrees ahead of CKP. Can I think that the old timing chain is elongated? At 3.1 degrees, the length of the timing chain can be calculated on the premise of knowing the length of the timing chain. I do not know if my judgment is correct?
Does CMP advance or lag relative to CKP when the timing chain is stretched?

Only one chain? ..... or the whole set? :?:

If your looking at the front of the engine and the engine is running clockwise, the tensioner is on the slack side of the chain (its not slack as the tensioner is there) and not the pull side, as the as the chain stretches the tensioner will move out and will move the cam/s anticlockwise and the crank clockwise unless the chain is really baggy and the tensioner is at its stop

The camshaft rotates counterclockwise, the crankshaft rotates clockwise, so there is no reference, because both positions will change and cannot be calculated. How long the chain is stretched can only be roughly seen when the chain is elongated and the phase changes.

A timing chain, not a set

Well, then everything is believable.

CGMA?

I read something about management and training regarding the above, but I'm sure it might mean something different!

Then there is a difference of the OTTO cycle that I'm not aware of, that being crank rotation being in opposite direction to cam rotation!

That's got to be a misunderstanding surely!
