    Default Timing Tensioner, head size

    Hi.
    As title, trying to take the tensioner out from back of engine.
    Didn't realise how big the head is. Anyone know what size it is cause I don't have anything that big?
    It's bigger than my adjustable!!!
    Any tricks to getting this out?
    Thanks

    Perhaps give is a clue as to which engine you're referring to, or is guessing part of the fun?

    Timing chain replacement due to tensioner going.
    Taking head off to be checked for bent valves as suspect jump on the chain. Replacing water pump, timing and balance chain (kit) and checking pistons/bottom end for damage due to the smallest piece breaking off the guide rail under the cam cover.

    The company I may be getting it from are adament it is the second generation. They told me it is still oil feed but also has a spring in it.
    Is that correct or does that still sound like the crap one. Might have to wait until I get it and see. Will send back if I think it is the same.
