Re: 02 4.7HO headgasket?
Yup, that worked! I didn't use a bungee though, I just marked the sprocket in 2 places, zip tied the chain to the upper chain guide as it sticks out into the valve cover, then removed the sprocket and zip tied the chain tight to itself on the guide again. Replaced the head and most of the bolt-ons, gotta work until Wednesday, then I'll finish up, change the oil, fill antifreeze and start it up!
Thanks for your help, I appreciate it
