No matter what you do, if you are rebuilding the engine, it would be foolish 
and risky not to replace the timing chain and gears. The decision to go with 
a double or single row chain is up to you. For my money, I prefer a double row
system. They are more durable, and less prone to failure. Even if it's only 
slight improvement, I'd rather do it once now, and rest easier later.
