  2. Standard 6th gen chain is 110 links (count to make sure that's what you got). And sprockets F/R are 16/43 (OEM front preferred IMO). You may be judging the wear indicator incorrectly... (I really don't use that indicator for rear sprocket position at all - too subjective.) And your measurement of play may be off. (I'd suggest to adjust to the high end). Likely the chain is ok and if there are no tight spots and if it is not over tight - you are good to go.

  4. A bad stand switch won't cause the clock to reset... Check all connections and grounds as suggested but also get the harness recall done!
  5. So you need a thermostat to let the engine run at a reasonable and stable internal temperature. Hopefully you didn't just remove the thermostat. The dash panel, that is now gone, displayed the internal engine temp and not the temp that turns on the fan. They are separate and operate independently. The fan & switch are a simple relationship. There should be no real reason to add a switch unless it is running too hot and you want to run the fan more frequently. If i recall correctly, the thermocouple (switch) that turns on the fan is, or was, in the left radiator. You should still use it, but not to control the "engine operating temp". That has to be controlled by the thermostat.

  8. Thanks for providing this. I just bought a 2001 and it had no manuals. This is great! Mark
