It's a long while ago now and it did work. You're right, the LDC engines only had the central bolt and I recall undoing the cap, unscrewing or screwing in the helix in and out and then putting the cap back on and it was sorted. Before the manual ones came along it is what people did. I did it for the few that came here for work. so, I'm sorry mate but....

My ratchet wasn't knackered so a click was a click as far as I was concerned. My CCT just had a job getting to the next click and I helped it.

I understand that, but if it's makining alot of noise it's most likely knackered and will just get loose again when the cam chain applies pressure.

The fundamental difference between these and the older two bolt design is that the older type will not retract once extended no mather how much pressuer is put opon it

This type will colpase when pushed down, as to fit it it is necessary too do so as described in the manual and known as the 2 washer or coin method.

When they are worn out they just push down easier

So that passage is for lubrication only. If Im wrong explain to Me how. The OEM tensioner work off of spring pressure. Theres no passage coming from the pump.
That oil passage comes from the head and does have oil pressue, it's not gravity only. That's why there is a o-ring to keep oil from just falling down.

Tha's why they are noisier on start-up until the pressure bilds up.
I know there is also a spring in the system but it also relies on oil pressure

What I did was to remove the cap/screw of the tensioner started my 390 oil did oozed out I put my finger over the hole to stop it. It was so little pressure that would have little to no affect on the tensioner. So technically webmonstro your right but that pressure that the spring is doing 99% of the work. At best the pressure is a buffer but that is all. No spring no tensioner! Later I went back to bike did the test again but this time I revved the for the most no difference in pressure.
