Plunger Primary chain tensioner
« on: 13.12. 2010 21:02 »
Hi

I completely stripped my plunger A10 and also removed the primary chain tensioner at the time. I have refitted the tensioner and the securing castle nuts which I dont think should be done up too tight and then wired  so the "tensioner" can move whilst being adjusted. I have tightened up the nuts such that the tensioner can just moves with a bit of a push - is this ok?

Kind regards

Nigel

G'day Nigel,
                   might be just a tad tight. Just the slightest drag should be felt.
Cheers
