timing chain tensioner or oiler? WHT GOES HERE.

Postby tinijimi » Sat May 09, 2015 8:37 am

Firstly, I would like to apologize if this is somewhere on this forum. I also referenced my service manual and still cannot seem to find this part. Any help would be great. What is the proper name for this part so I can order a new one? Thank

On the slack side of the timing chain is the tensioner perpendicular to that, in between the slack and tight side of the chain, is the part I am looking for. It appears to slip onto a metal dowel connected to the block. I can send a photo if needed.

Again, thanks for your help... and I apologize if this is a duplicate post.
