I'm a little surprised nobody got back to you on this. I just replaced the timing chain on my '71, let me say "I know very little about cars", aside from that I had some help from my uncle, who knows a lot more than I do. He said definitely go with the double roller, so I did. The difference is hard to put into words exactly, other than its literally two chains instead of just one. I'm guessing by now you've gone to the auto parts store and looked at the difference. From what I understand the double roller is much stronger and will last longer.

WOW that was pretty bad! I'm surprised it can even get that worn and still work at all. I'm gonna go with, changing it was probably a good idea

DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT drive the harmonic damper on using your crank bolt. Use the proper installation tool, and you won't damage the threads. Autozone will loan the tool out to you.
