Easy, if you have bench vice press, you need the bigger one because you have to retract the vice till you can sit the tensioner in there. Then set it to the vice make sure it straight then you press it slowly.. So press it then count 4 seconds then press it again till you see the hole line up then you get a small allen key(or the old key) that will go in there, put that in then release the press now you compressed your tensioner.. The key is slow pressing because this unit is hydraulic and if you press it to fast it will leak out and it will loose tension and bam you know the rest..
Quote, originally posted by irish1967 » Got the head on ok - and no sealant on the head gasket..realized that after i read some other stuff. Now i have a differnet problem.
I put the belt on and pulled the pin, on the piston and then realized i was a tooth off...so i took the belt off and after much frustration and cursing was able to get the piece with the piston out again but i cant get it to budge to resent the pin in there...how much pressure should have to be put on it to get it to depress..the old one was pressable with my thumb but with this one i cant get it to move one bit. Could it be bad or is it supposed to be really really hard to pressdown? i already used the 5mm bolt and broke it off. Any thoughts would be appreciated..im working on this now.
