Timing chains????

Anybody used a timing chain recommended for a crank that has been turn 0.010 over? Seen some company's offer a different part number for a 0.010 crank. Mine has been turned 0.010 and didn't want to go with a stock replacement if that is going to cause problems in the future.

What am I missing here? What does having the crank jounals machined 0.010 under have to do with the timing chain? The undersized bearings don't change the positioning of the crank in any way. Why would there be a special timing chain?

Thats what I was thinking too. Thats why I wanted to ask around and see if anyone else knows what is different. I would think that everything would stay the same with the new bearings. I am from the school of thought where if they offer a part number for that there was a reason for it. I just don't know what that reason would be for. Waiting on a email from the manufactor to see. Just curious.

the snout does not get machined. the fit should remain the same as what it was.

Gotta remember that one to spring on the "partsman" at AutoZZZZone. He's caught on to Corvair water pumps by now.
