Got the same issue right now, I don't find to many threads talking about this issue with the timing chains and guides on this car. Would busted guides cause all the problems even if the chains haven't broke?
Yea, I got it all put back together, but I had to adjust the distributor a bit to get it to fire. Runs pretty well except Iv'e got a small oil leak coming from around the power stering pump. Not sure about that, I'll look at it today. The other issue is the transmission isn't shifting into any gears. I had to replace the driver side CV axle, not a real tough job and I don't think that would have caused the problem, but it wants to grind a little when I shift back into park and I cant seem to get it to go into any gear. The shifting rod moves at the transmission, but its not engaging. I think it's some sort of range switch or position switch. Not finding a lot of info on this either. I'll keep you posted. Let me know how the new distributor works.
