    Std tensioner is fine for your power level/setup... manual tensioners are mainly for when you have uprated valve springs and cams...

    Yes they do... don't pull it until you are sure... always double check the belt as they have a habit of ending up a tooth out...

    Yup, mine ended up a tooth out after I fitted a new belt, Paul said to check it, and if I'm completely honest, I almost didn't bother as I was 100% confident it hadn't moved whilst I swapped the belts over.

    Trusting Pauls knowledge, i decided to humour him and spin it over once to check timing, and bugger me, it was a tooth out!

    Standard hydraulic tensioner on mine too Gaz.

    The INA manual tensioners are a rip off anyway, they're just a standard hydro one with the insides removed and replaced with a bolt!
