I have a question when swaping the 25 degree gear in the k24a2 to the 50 degree rsx gear do u have to remove the cams 2 replace it or can it be done with the cams and rockers still attached????

The chain should first be moved out of the way after removing the tensioner. Then you hold the cam with a wrench and remove the gear as per the helms manual.
Thank you! I was just :confused: on how you were supposed to keep tension on the chain and take the gear off!

It will come off w/o disassembling the cyl head!

I know what he meant , just messing around. If in car do what he said with a bunjie cord to keep the chain around the bottom of the chain sprocket when removing the tensioner thru the little window on the cover.

i know what should be done. I have done it with my eyes burning from a jug of methanol that fell in my shop...
the op wants to know if it can be done without taking the timing chain cover off the cam caps or cams...
