The Irishman

Factual error: While handling the ignition coil cable to the distributor cap, Joe Pesci tells De Niro that the timing chain needs adjustment in his truck. The timing chain on the Chevy OHV 6 cylinder in this scene is behind the water pump and a cover. It would have been a several hour job to replace, not possible to adjust.

New this month Suggested correction: A truck of that year with an inline Chevy motor would not have a timing chain at all, instead this truck would be equipped with a direct drive timing gear.

New this month I didn't think you were right. I thought it would have been a timing chain but I looked it up and a 250 Chevy is timing gear driven. It makes the mistake that much worse.
