Go to northern auto parts, get the cloyes single roller Vortec timing chain. It`s made for Vortec blocks.

I built a 383 using a late model block, had to grind it in that area to use the double roller chain.

You can`t go by the picture. I`ve built several Vortec engines so I know what they use.

This is from Jegs and the part number is the same as the one at Northern.

The 3157 is the more expensive model, the 1157 is the less expensive model and works just the same:
