I am trying to determine if the adjustment bolt located below the carbs between the second and third cylinders is for setting the cam chain tension and how to set it . There is some cam chain noise at low...


Yes, it is the cam chain tensioner. With the engine off, just loosen the tensioner lock bolt then strongly tap a few times on the tensioner casing with a screwdriver handle. This will free up the spring loaded tensioner. Now just re=tighten the tensioner lock bolt and you're done. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_157.gif

Timing chain noise


Yes, that would sound about rite the xl125 r along with all the single hondas are pron to chain noise, easy fix, remove alternator l/ h cover, also timeing cover on cylinder head, mark plate and case with screwdriver for exact replacment, undo 10 mm bolt in end of camshaft and remove the atu unit take care not to loose the locating pin from the camshaft
Remove the pin if loose, undo the 2cover bolts and remove the cam cover, locate the timeing mark on the cam wheel and turn the engine until the mark on the wheel aligns with the mark on the case at about 12 oclock, then check the position of the lower pully and mark this, undo the top wheel bolts securing it to the camshaft, gently pull the wheel of the cam slightly and then hook the chain off the wheel, the cam wheel will now pass through the case opening,the cam chain will now come off the lower wheel, and can be pulled up and out over the end of the camshaft, and replacment would be in reverse order, checking alignment of all previously noted marks and security of all fixings before rotating the engine with a spanner and check it completes a full 360 degres before atempting to use the kickstart, the tensioner is addjusted by removing the top nut from the tensioner located on top of the crankcase lh side at the rear of the cylinder, then undo the 14 mm tensioner bolt, you could try first off screwing a 4mm screw into the tensioner, where the 10 mm bolt is removed, undoing the 14mm and pulling up on the screw with a pliers while tightening the 14mm locking device, as the tensioner is automatic this would be a manual addjustment and may remove the exsess slack

My cam chain is rattley how do i tighten it ive a 89 zxr 400


There is a cam chain tensioner on the ZXR 400. It sounds like you need a new cam chain.

Important Note: The cam cahin tensioner is held on by the two bolts that hold the clutch cable bracket underneath the timing cover. Never loosen these bolt and re tighten them. If you need to undo them, remove the cam chain tensioner and reset it.

How do i change the cam chain tensioners on a 1989 Honda CBR 1000F


hi the tensioner itself is bolted to the rear of the cylinder with 2 bolts, simply remove the bolts and remove the tensioner, it is unlikely this has failed however when undoing the bolts if the tensioner is working correctly you will start to feel pressure as the tensioner pushes against the tensioner blade, if this is not the case it is likely the chain itself needs replacing, at which time the tensioner blade and guide should be changed, more difficult than changing the tensioner, warning it is most important that you remove the ignition key, disconnect battery and under no circumstances turn the engine while the tensioner is removed

Can i remove the timing chain tensioner from the top of the motor on a 2000 cavalier 2.2l or is that only with a dual cam?


Hi Friend:

Your Timing Chain Tensioner is located in the Lower Front of your engine.

#1) you'll have to disconnect your negative Battery cable.

#2) Remove the Top Engine cover to give you better access to the Front of Engine.

#3) Then you'll need to remove your alternator and with wiring attached put it off to the Side you might have to tie it with a wire to secure it.

#4) then you'll need to remove your Power Steering Leave the Lines on it and Put it to the sideas well , Tie off if necessary.

#5) then Jack up the front of your car,make sure you Put Good Stands under the car to keep it secure.while you work under it.

#6) then remove the TWO front Oil Pan Bolts Only the very 2-Front ones.

#7) Then directly above the Oil pan front of the Engine you'll see your Crank Shaft Pulley Remove it, You will need a Puller to Remove it.then the Timing Chain Cover, There are Several bolts Holding it on to the front of the Engine.

#8) Remove ALL the Bolts on Timing over, then Take cover Off,It could be a Little Stubborn ,if All bolts are out for sure, Take a Small plastic mallet and Tap the Cover Easily,until it comes off.

#9) Now before you remove anything else there is a Timing Mark on the Cam Shaft and one on the Crank Shaft,NOTE: BESURE you line them marks up,The Cam Shaft Mark should be pointing Straight Down--And the Crankshaft Mark needs to be Pointing Straight up.and Lined up with the Top Timing Mark.If the are Not

NOTE: Rotate the Engine by Hand Turning the Sprockets until they are LINED Up.

Then Take off the Top Cam Shaft Mounting Bolts,then Pull Sproket and timing Chain at the Same Time.

Then Loosen the Chain Tensioner Bolt with out taking it ALL the Way OUT. then remove your Chain Tensioner.

If your this far i Recommend that you Replace The Timing Chain,Cam Sproket and Crankshaft Sproket as well.

If not the Install your new Chain Tensioner,And Just Simply Reverse the Un-Install Directions.To Put All back Together.

Do Replace the Timing Cover Seal. Using Proper Seal Remover and Installer.

Also before you put your Timing cover back on CLEAN the Surfaces of the Engine and the Cover.And Use a Gasket Sealer and Mount to Block ==Lining Up ALL your Timing Cover Bolt Holes. Let it set a Short time a Few Minutes at Least. To prevent Slipping when installing your Timing Case Cover.

1- Last Thing Torque your Timing Chain Tensioner at 89 Inch Pounds.Which rewuires a Torque Wrench.

And Torque ALL your Timing Cover Bolts at 97 Inch Pounds.Do NOT Over Tighten You'll Strip them.

MAKE Sure the Timing Marks are Still lined up.

This will get your Timing Chain Tensioner Replaced. Thanks for using FixYa From: d_hubbs

Clicking sound at engine lower right


the chain or maybe the tensioner from chain. First step is to check the tensioner. Is always located on the line with the cam chain, fixed in 2 bolt in the engine(cilinder). locate it by watching a piece with a bolt in the center, and that piece is fixed on the cilinder with two smaller bolts. When reinstalling, screw the main bolt to retain the spring from tensioner.
If the tensioner is damaged(used) he won't be able to press well on the chain. you see that when you remove it. If you could reinstall it without screwing the bolt, that means that he's used.
Warning.
after reinstalling on the cilinder, fixed in those two bolts, make sure to unscrew the main bolt back. When you unscrew it, the spring is released on the chain to keep it tensioned.

Can u adjust the timming chain on a yamaha xj 600 1998 model


The XJ600 has a self adjusting timing chain tensioner, although it's robust enough, like the previous post say's they can stick. To remove the adjuster look at the back of the engine on the cylinder head, the tensioner is there, two bolts hold it on one above and one below. to remove the tensioner there is a spring tensioner in the centre of the unit, undo this with care it hold the pressure spring in place on the plunger. Now remove the retaining bolts very carfully, equal turns on each bolts (do not take one out fully, leaving the other in place fully tight).
Once off the engine DO NOT ROTATE the engine. The tensioner should move freely, although there is a rachet system that locks it out, if it moves out freely then it's fine. To re-fit the tensioner release the tensioner make sure it's adjusted fully inwards and use a fresh gasket. The tensioner only firs one way, if it won't fit don't force it and it can be broken easily. Tighten both retaining bolts evenly and per the removal. Re-fit the tensioning spring and retaining bolt (do not over tighten) the plunger is self adjusting from here.

How do you time a 2006 kxf450 dirtbike?


this is done via a bolt on the outside of the engine located on the head but i strongly urge you to go see a qualified motorcycle mechanic due to the fact that not doing this correctly will cause massive harm to the engine and if the chain falls off then you need to get the engine pulled apart and put back on which will cost you mega $$$$

Want to tighten cam chain on xjr400


If you need to tighten your cam chain then it sounds like the automatic tensioner might need loooking at as it isn't functioning correctly, or your chain needs changing if the tensioner is working fine.
Tensioner is located at the back of the cylinder block below the carbs: remove the carbs and unscrew the bolts holding the tensioner to the block. Once removed check the tensioner has extended and moves freely on the spring. if needed strip it down and clean the mechanism and rebuild, should be pretty self explanitary how it comes and/goes together once its off the bike.
