Timing Chain cover alignment
I've got an 85 CJ7 with the 258. I just replaced the timing chain and am getting ready to install the timing cover. The FSM calls for using an alignment tool to center the timing cover around the end of the crankshaft where the vibration dampner goes. What's everyone do for this step without having the special tool?? I've also got my oil pan off so there's some wiggle room for the timing cover.
I am doing this soon and would like to bump for info. Also shadoow, how did this go for you? Do you have any links to write ups? I have been searching the forum and google and no one has a good step by step write up on how to change the timing chain.
Whenever something breaks on my Cj... I learn something new by fixing it.
Just install the cover with a couple of bolts loosely. Then install the harmonic balance, torque all the bolts you can access, remove harmonic balancer, torque bolts you could not access.

Others may have other ways, but that's how I got there.
