Oil Pump Chain Guide
I noticed in the service manual that there is an oil pump chain guide added on the later models.
Does anyone know if this can be installed on the earlier models that did not come with one? Is there an advantage to doing that?
I checked the parts number of the chain for the newer and later models (it was introduced in '86) and it's the same chain. I figure the guide might just work on the older case?
