I'm replacing the oil pump and pick up tube o ring. I was curious how the timing chain gets lube. I'm replacing the chain as well why I got it apart. I didnt know if there was squirter holes or another way it gets oil. The oil in the pan is way below the chain. Any thoughts?

Usually they are lubed by the oil thats squirting out of the front main bearing.
