New Timing Chain

Has anyone built a new timing chain for a Durant, Model 40 which is similar to the roller chain for the 14L engine as described in the Tech. Pages? If so, I would appreciate getting a parts list and description of the process.
Thanks for any help.

Do You own a car built by Durant? \\'29 Durant 40 and \\'27 Star R cabriolet

Re: New Timing Chain

Hi Mac.

The double roller timming sprockets and cain I listed in the teck page artical should work on your engine with the exception of the distributor which may have a different tooth count. The people at the bearing store should be able to help you out. Just make sure the sprockets have hardened teeth. If I can be of any asistance email me at bruceofbothell@verizon.net. Good Luck, Bruce.
