95 SPI with simplex timing chain.
Hi, just struggling to recall the arrangement of washer(s) that came out with the tensioner arm. It's the type that pivots within a bracket that's fixed with two bolts. From what I recall there's just a small washer that fits over the head of the pivot pin before it is inserted through the bracket. Haynes refers to washers either side of the pivot arm but the Haynes figure shows a different type of arm.

Bump, any advice would be much appreciated. Parts diagram shows no washers with this tensioner set up, Haynes suggests otherwise but shows different (pre-92 I think) tensioner arm. Thanks

Sorry, I did mean to post a reply the other day !

To many distractions.

 

OK - Washers. There are no washers fitted to the Pin at all. The Pin fits through the metalwork and in between is the tensioner.

 

The 2 bolts that hold the tensioner to the front of the Block with the front Engine Plate in between, have Spring Washers. I also fit flat Washers here too
