Curious as to what method you used to "suck" it out with?
The tensioner rail pivot pin is under a cap. Remove the cap off the block using an allen wrench, then there is a pin which will slide out easily if you could only get a grip on it. As I recall, I used a straight blade screwdriver and sorta wedged it inside the pin and slid it out. Its hard to get a grip on the pin.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
