You know about filling the tensioner with oil before installing don't you?
Hello, Army...top- o the morning. I think the chain side is in great shape actually. No I did not know about filling the tensioner with oil. I was wondering about taking that thing apart to clean it but am not sure how. I got a new timing chain tensioner spring. I think unless it is absolutely necessary I will have to stick with this guide rail, I have gone way over budget to this point. Maybe I will do it down the road when the timing chain gets done. I do have the new lower guides for that so far, just need to save up for a chain and upper large guide.
Everyone should know the pin that goes through the block to hold the timing guide in the cyl. head is $65.00 and as far ass I can tell is dealer only. All the parts sites list the part but nobody has them. I was going to buy a new one but when I heard the price decided to stick with the old one. The dealership prices for parts are getting crazy lately. I can see this hobby ending soon if these prices stay like this..
