SR20DE Timing Chain Tensioner
|The timing chain tensioner is in the center of this image - located on the right rear of the cylinder hear, just above and ahead of the oil filter. The area is tight, but the job is suprisingly easy.|
|The upgraded tensioner on the right is superior to the original factory part. The oil chamber and passage are larger for greater volume and pressure. The new gasket is a two-piece stamped design, compared to old one composed of a single stamping with a rubber insert.|
|This is a head-on view off the new tensioner and gasket prepared for installation. Note the orientation of the assembly and the locked plunger.|
