Just noticed this. I am assuming because of the different cam sizes. Maybe it will help someone.

This is at TOP DEAD CENTER

The 2nd pic is wrong. Double row upper chain is double row upper chain on s13 or s14 KA 240sx. Later model s14 KA may be a single row as well as fwd KA engines.

1st pick also shows ebay style (maybe itm?) timing chain kit. These are junk imo and I would never use them. All it took was to see 1 engine come in with a broken ebay chain. no thanks.

2nd pic shows a oem chain that has been incorrectly installed. Nothing to do with cam size.
