Cam chain tensioner
« on: March 31, 2017, 02:20:22 PM »
Do I need to/or is there a way to "pre prime" the cam chain tensioner when reinstalling it? I just finished a valve adjustment(tight intake valves) and had to release the oil to get the tensioner bolt back in. Just want to make sure the chain doesn't skip when I go to turn it over. Thanks

Nope, it'll be just fine to put in. The check ball on the inside gets pushed in when oil pressure builds up in the motor, allowing oil inside of the tensioner to pressurize it. Tightening your timing chain and taking the slack out of it.
