    Guys, got the cam cover off to replace the gasket and also about to change the cam chain tensioner gasket and half moon to stop all my leaks, but I dont have the torque settings for refitting the the tensioner. Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks

    I just nipped them up too.

    I'm assuming that you only unscrewed the two torx bolts so you could move the cam adjuster about slightly?
