Re: timimg chain tensionor Q

Hey man, be careful. If you want my advice (you prolly don't ) get yourself one of those repair manuals from Kmart for your car (Gregory's etc). It will explain how it works and how to put it back in. Saved me a lot of heartache when I pulled my head off for a reco'.

Re: timimg chain tensionor Q

I pulled the head of my EF the other day. I cable tied the chain to the sproket. I also undid the tensioner bolt and pulled it out but screwed it back in straight away. Hope i didnt stuff anything up :/

I have a gregorys manual and it does say not to take it out, It doesn't say what will happen if I do.

Re: timimg chain tensionor Q

Useless,
Was that because the cam sprocket had skipped a tooth or the chain was too loose? If not do you know why?

Re: timimg chain tensionor Q

Hang on, what model car is it?. If its an XF as you name suggests then I don't have a friggin clue, im talkin OHC EA-AU. If you do have a OHC, then in my Gregorys manual (1988-1992) on page 46 it has 3 picures of it and it tells you how to remove it, as well as putting it back in. When I took mine out, I found that it was worn, so i bought a new one from Ford. I could get screenies if you want.
