69 camaro base coupe 327/210ho need a timimng chain set recommendation

Would like to know what is a good brand /part number for a replacement timing gear set for a 69 327 / 210 hp. Also how do I know if the bottom gear is 1 or 3 splines? My timing mark jumps around when I put a timing light on it?

Just get a good american made set ! The stock crankshaft will only have one key (Spline) the 3 key (spline) timing gear is only to advance or retard the crank timing, usually by 4.

I looked on Rockauto and they listed about 25 timing chains for the car.

I would leave the lower sprocket alone.

Remove the chain and cam sprocket and take it to the auto parts store. Match it up and install the new chain.

I would never do this on a performance setup but you will be fine.

The Cloyes set on Rock Auto should be fine.

Isn't Cloyes part number C3023SP a double roller chain and if so will it fit in the OEM timing chain cover? Should I leave the lower sprocket alone?

Yes that sure looks like a double roller.
No, you will not be able to keep the lower sprocket. You will have to use a gear puller to remove it.
Yes it will fit under the stock OEM timing cover.

Checked my timing chain today and it looks like I have about 10 degrees slop in it. I ordered the Cloyes time set and a Fel Pro timing chain cover gasket set. If there is anything else I need please let me know.

Do I need to drop the oil pan to remove the timing chain cover?

I hate the job you're having to do Steve. It's so tempting to say that it's about as easy to just pull the engine. At least that way you can dig into the rest of the parts. The fact that the chain is worn out sure would lead me to think the rest of it is ready for some R&R too.

when I turn the crank I feel about 5 to 6 degrees slop and then it gets tight and the distributor rotor starts turning around 9 to 10 degrees. What is the actual number of slop in the chain? The first 5-6 or second number 9-10?
