No.... SOME loose and tight spots are normal because when chains are installed they are not PRE stretched. However thats with a grain if salt, what is being displayed is excessive. So we move on from there.If you turn the crank pulley to a different position of the chain and it's tight b't cams then its tensioner
Yes i forgot i read google on your resume.Yes. I’m speaking from experience because of it happening to me
If some 1 is giving bad information like suggesting a 25$ timming tens.... i have to point out what a bad idea that is.If the chain is worn enough to have slack then it‘s good practice to change out corresponding components if it is to be a fixed all at once to have peace of mind and no question. mxaustin, do yourself a favor and don’t condescend others when they are trying to help. Maybe you should google chain tensioner, Amazon has them for $25.
