I'd pick up a haynes or chilton manual.
I wouldn't worry about "holding the chain up". Your going to have to re do the timing anyways. Might as well just pull the timing cover and get it done.
Im trying to change my head gasket and i need to know how to remove the timing chain (or i read somthing about holding the chain up so it doesnt move)
If anybody has any info on this it would be greatly appreciated. Pics or vids would be awesome!!

im a noob and i have a hard time navigating around on this website......... there are lots of guides here to look at
Care to give me some links?
ecotec is super easy to time. line up the three marks and ur done. haynes does a good job explaining.

Like he said there are three links on the chain two red and one blueish/greenish. turn the eng to #1 TDC so the crank sprocket's mark is pointing about to the 5-oclock position. then line up the greenish link on the chain to the mark on the intake sprocket. now line up one red link to the exhaust sprocket mark and the other red link to the mark on the crank sprocket. and ur DONE! lol hope this helps.
what they all said, and you really should get the book, it will help keep you out of trouble and cheaper then bent valves and effed piston tops.
It's not what you buy,it's what you build!
