the last link zibby posted is the shit.

i do not knwo how to test this part easily. what i used to do, is to listen with a stethoscope, to make sure if the noise is from the chain and not something else. then, if the motor was new, the symptoms were right, and i was sure that the chain is not stretched, i'd just replace the tensioner.

To use stethoscope on engines to recognize any noises, someone has to be an advanced auto tech or a physician ,that is why you know how to do it Peter ! LOL...
