Default NS 3.2 did timing chain cover

I've finally stripped out cleaned and replaced the inlet manifold on my car. After this, I've been planning to remove the timing chain cover and check the chain for stretch. However, despite what it says in my Haynes Manual, I can't see that it's possible to remove the timing chain cover without also removing the cylinder head: does anyone know better, or have any links I might find useful.

The inlet manifold was BAAAD, incidentally, at 192k, and had never been done before. I'm looking forward to driving it again, but I really want to check out the timing chain first...it just seems as though the cover is under the cylinder head gasket?

Any help appreciated, I'm really needing to get this vehicle back on the road.

Thanks,

Jim

Have you had the recall done for the tensioner?

Jim

Have you checked out the on line manual on this forum that I talk about alot?! Anyway yes you'd have to take off the cylinder head according to the manual.

Is it worth fitting a new tensioner first just in case??

Ah, I missed a line in the Haynes manual...it appears that the front two cylinder head bolts need to be removed, and care taken to avoid damage to the cylinder head gasket as the timing cover is removed.
