    ...alright, someone 'splain to the n00b...when you say 'X clicks out", does that mean when you pull the tensioner there are X teeth/clicks showing on the rod?
    I just pulled mine and I counted 14 teeth showing, the rod is sticking out 14 teeth.
    Tell me that's not a bad thing...
    Note: I did not pull the end bolt at the tooth shaft if that makes a diff.

    I pull out the tensioner, then I reset it to zero. Then I bolt it back on, and push it in snug to the chain and count the clicks til it's snug.

    After running the motor and letting it cool. Pull the back bolt and spring. Then undo the two flange bolts holding Acct to the motor casting. Holding it horizontal while removing, then count how many clicks are showing.

    If you do like xymotic you could get a false reading because of slack on the back side of the chain.

    Just like valves the most accurate way is to have the motor at TDC.

    6500 miles and just checked it last night. 6 clicks, 7 if you count the low sides. The spring is pretty squirly going back in. I tried to get it to go in straight but I ran out of beer and gave up. I didnt reset the plunger back to zero, just put it back in like I found it,,, I'm guessing thats okay?

    You'll be alright, makes it easier to install the spring anyway........

    2006 te610 with just over 8000 miles acct at 9 clicks. Or ten if you count low spots. Had to replace the counter shaft so looked like a good time for a new cam chain and manual tensioner.
