    In short there is no easy way except to open up the timing case and take a gander. All the tell-tales that VX say indicate that it's been done have in many instances proved wrong, so they really can't be trusted as categorical proof.

    So as you've got to open up the timing case to find out you may as well chuck a new chain-set in there whilst doing so
