At a guess bud Id say not if you watch a few videos on You tube you should be able to make a decision, or better still do a dry run and let us know how you get on Smile

I'd be interested to know why it matters where the chain is. I've never noticed a different link. Must be something I missed.  Can't you just set the cams in the right place when installing them whatever the position of the chain?

Did you fit the front cover after installing the head? Im doing mine tomorrow and thinking of doing it this way. I read on this site: http://forums.nicoclub.com/diy-rebuilding-an-sr20det-t309576.html he removed the oil pump drive to get it fitted.

Do you need to apply sealant to the top and bottom of the head gasket around the chaincover bit?

I always do them with front cover on. Before dissemble I mark lines on cam sprockets & add better marks for crank so easier see all good, if you follow service manual on chain links etc it pretty easy set-up although could of been easier if sprockets had proper decent mating marks from factory.
Lots of debate on what do with HG sealing around chain housing lip.
a lot comes down to type of gasket used & what finish work done to block, if in doubt a very light smear bottom & top can be used, keep it very minimal & slightly away from inner edge as will go everywhere if too much & you don't want strands of sealer inside engine that could lead to trouble.
I've used it at times when HG or block bit worrying, used Apexi & Tomei on good finished blocks & heads without & never had an issue although the coating on those mls gaskets is above average.
If in doubt use a bit as better than having an oil weep, just do very light smear though as only trying fill any super slight surface imperfections in chain cover lip & meeting points to block.

Cheers Mr B, it's a standard head gasket, not had the block or head decked, they were in good condition cleaned up well. Although I did drop a wrench on the block today Shocked put a dent in it, thankfully not on a seal line!
