[TR] TR3B timing chain slack

Measuring horizontally at the center bolt with the tensioner removed.
There is very little side play, I don't know about any rattle noise as I
have never driven this engine although it seems very sound. In side of the
cover is sludge/crud free.

how are you measuring the slack?
there is a spring at the side that tensions it, but not until you put the
timing cover on.

What is an acceptable amount of slack in the TR3B (TCF) timing chain? With
all the slack on the tensioner side I can measure 25mm of play. Is this OK?
