Should the crankshaft timing chain gear be able to slide on like nothing even ove the key. The old one was on there real good and required a puller to remove but the new one slides right on and of with no force needed at all. It came factory with single roller and I purchased a cloys double roller for the install.

Well I measured it and it was .0015 in larger diameter than the original. Went back to Oreilly and told them it was to large and they tried to sell me a sleeve for my crankshaft. Finally after getting fed up with the stupid assistant manager who said they didnt have anymore of the same timing chain in stock the employee I purchased it from before walked out of the back with a new one. Took measurements and the new one is the exact diameter. Got it installed but was having soje minor issues with my engine block hitting the firewall when lifting it to replace motor moujts and oil pan gasket.
