My 97, 2.7L decided to blow a head gasket. I got the head off, got the cams and crank lined up, but I somehow, don't ask how I managed this, dropped the timing chain.

What I was wondering was if it would matter how it went back on? Like, will some of the teeth not line up? I'm not sure that it would actually matter, but I wanted to make sure..

Thanks.

Lining up the shiny links helps time the thing buts its not a requirement at all the chain is exact all the way around. just make sure you time the cam and crank and you will be fine.
