Death rattle gone, but for how long?
Ok started playing around with the tensioner again this morning, pulled it out gave it a bit of a cleanup, then as I was screwing it back in, for the first time I actually felt a little resistance...so I thought ok see how it goes, bolted the power steering pump back on, started her up and there wasnt a rattle to be heard! took it for a spin, switched her on and off a few times and its still quiet. Can anyone explain to me why I would suddenly get a bit of tension on the chain after a whole day spent failing to do so?
maybe the oil feed hole was blocked? who knows but for now I am happy that its quiet, but for how long?
Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted
