When I did that on my Pontiac (5 liter V8), I simply unhooked the old chain, hooked the new one on to it, carefully turned the engine a full revolution until I could unhook the old chain from the new and snap the new chain together. It was more work removing the cover (not much space under the hood) than it was to replace the chain.
For a 2008 Ford Mustang 4.0 V6 (also in Explorers and Rangers):
To replace the timing chain you must pull the engine, intake, heads, and pretty much everything else to replace the @$%& timing chains (4 of them). :eek:
At this point I may as well do a complete rebuild.

Wait! I always think you're about 20~30 years old. Sorry, my bad :D

Sorry again for off topic.
Na I'm a 'mid' fart.

I collect old coins and currency. Is that considered a skill or a hobby?
I play with Legos. A skill or play time? I have a dedicated room with probably half a million pieces. Sadly no time lately to play. :(

Ouch!

Even worse than replacing the spark plugs on my Pontiac. As they sit in the side of the cylinders, it has to be down from below, and you'll need a special tool and an extra joint on your arm to reach them...

And, while we are discussing cramped engine compartments, I can't change one of the headlights on my Honda CRV. My hands are too big (and I don't have large hands, they are average male size), and I can't reach it. I need to get help from my girlfriend or the kids. Changing a headlight bulb should be easy, even without tools and in darkness!

A friend of mine was so happy when they got their first child. Suddenly, he could play with Lego as much as he wanted, and, as an adult, he had the money to buy all the Lego he liked.

Also, when the new Star Wars movies came out, he was happy, because he could buy what toys he liked. When he was a kid and the original movies came, his parents never understood that you can't just have ONE stormtrooper figure...

Oh yeah, that's my story too :)

Suddenly I could watch Disney's The Aristocrats (and then many other movies and cartoons), play lego, jump in puddles, throw snowballs, make sandcastles, marble tracks..
All the amusement a child's mind (mine) could conceive..

Probably I am several 5-yo children in a single adult body..and I like it !

This evening I tried the following routine:
B4X:
Sub Dinner_today
Dim Thuna As Tuna_sushi_quality
Dim Potatoes, Pastinake As Vegetable
Kitchen.Initalize("myKitchen")
For i = 1 To Pastinake.count
  Prepare(pastinake)
  Prepare(potatoe)
Next
cook_together(vegetables)
Finish_with(Cream, megnut,salt, lemon)
Roast(tuna,3 minutes, salt, pepper,lemonjuice)
CallSub("Bonapetite")
CallSub("Kitchen_Cleaner")

End Sub
There are still some errors in the code, the result is not for google play but anyway, it worked...

Hi eurojam,
I tried your code but got the following

Error: Salt not found. Did you forget to buy it from the shop!

Ford really took that engine a bit too far. It started out as 2.0 litre pushrod with gear driven cam in the 1960's and ended up being 4.0 littre SOHC with chain driven cam in the 1990's.

* Knotting and ropework. A very relaxing hobby.

* Shooting people in a hospital. (Well, it's no longer used as a hospital, it's not real guns and the other people are in the game volontarily.)

* Making huge rockets in Kerbal Space Program, and most of the time, they don't blow up.

* Catching naked, slimy pikes. (No, it's not a sexual reference, it's fishing.)

* Kicking butt in BF4.

* Complaining about the snow. I'm the effing king of this!
I'd expect you'd need a lot of patience for that
