      You wont be able to change the lower guide rail without removing the chain. You may be able to just remove it off the lower gear on the crank shaft and sneak it up but you'll want to make sure its at tdc cyl 1 regardless.

      Otherwise just take the covers off

      The chain has to be removed before removing the lower guide rail? I thought it just slid right out

      Lower guide rail chain needs to come out to remove. Lower tensioner doesn't need the chain to be removed. You'll see when you get into it

      Thank you for your reply/answer. One last question I have to remove the upper chain before removing the lower right?
