This only supports what others have attacked me for in the past, on the issue of tensioners. One of the oldest and reliable independents here in town that does lots and lots and lots of these timing chain jobs year in and year out, told me they only use original tensioners from the dealer on this part only. Seems that had several problems over the years with other brands not holding up as seems to be the case with yours. Glad to hear its O.K. Did you keep the part(tensioner) as I would be curious as to know the name on it?
