tensioner should be at 65nm. I found the system to be pretty foolproof, but as BC said, check it anyway to be sure.

As for 'bad' lifter, trying driving the car around a bit, it may smooth out. Mine sure did after I put it back together and drove the hell out of it. Sounded like crap, smoked, nailed at idle..but after driving was 200% better.

You'll find other threads on here about quieting the 603 lifters...seems to be a recurring theme, so I doubt a source of immediate major major concern.
