If you do decide to go with the full service replacement of timing drive systems, it means you should also replace both the front and rear guides for both cylinders, chains, tensioners.

If its a early motor that has the early head nuts still I would also update them at the same time....

Can be performed in the frame, however you will need a 14mm hex drive for turning the crankshaft to perform this work because the aux shaft will need to be removed to get the chains off/out.
