I thought Smaay stated that he realized he had to remove the Exhaust cam in order to get to the chain tansioner. My intake lift bolt is broken and I want to tackle this job, but I am intimidated by the whole chain tensioner part.This is probably a really dumb question but I would love to make sure 100%
The only reason you had to remove both camshafts is because both of your bolts were broken right? Say only the bolt to my intake camshaft is broken, I don't have to touch my exhaust cam correct?
The proper way to unhook the little hook is to put a wrench on the crank and give it a half turn backwards, you will then hear the chain tension-er release.You know, I don't recall pulling my exhaust cam to set the tensioner at all. I think I used a long hose pick or screw driver to push it in to unlatch the hook at and set it.
