One-way chain tensioner? '91 K100RS
Hi all, I'm doing valves on a 4v K100RS, they were fairly well out of spec. But while messing around with it, I think I may have let all tension go on the cam chain tensioner while the cams were out. I think I read that the tensioner is a one-way ratchet. The chain and sprockets sure are damn tight now when trying to get them back on the cams. Am I gonna have to open up the cam cover and mess with that ratchet mechanism to loosen it up again and reassemble it all? Anyone familiar with this stuff?
