so car was parked too long and the tensioner died when I went to start it after 3 months. found the timing chain jumped and the tensioner was completely dead.

Question, timing chain looks easy and there are tons of help online. I counted 37 links on from one cam point to the bottom and 38links on the chain on the other side. Dumb question but is there a front and back to this timing chain?

How can the chain be longer on the front than the back? You counted wrong is the only possibility there that i can see.
from the front bottom there are 37 links to first black, 7 links to 2nd black then 38 links to the front bottom. now that I look there is only black on one side of the chain and not on the other so it all makes sense now.
