Hi guys, so I have stock 1991 Chevrolet Caprice wagon with a 305 V8 and around 200K miles on the clock. Is it time to change the timing chain?

If the engine is having timing problems, then worry about it. The chains have been known to last 400+K miles.

Pretty common maintenance on those 4 bangers,keep those belts changed for prolonged life. Tongue and cheek comment at your "Capricefreakness" "Meant" as an attempt for humor,loses a lot in translation... Neutral
