Default 120k Get ready for a timing chain.

Thought i'd share something i recently encountered, second s65 actually.

120k, unabused original rod bearings still half way decent and good oil change history.


I guess a friendly warning to start saving for a job roughly 2k in parts with rod bearings and another ~25 hours in labor

That does not look like fun. I may do main bearings as preventative maintenance in a few years, when I will have about 120k. Drop the motor. I’ll repkace the chain and guides and look at the vanos. Did the rod bearings at 60k.
