    hi all, i bought a second hand engine a while back because my engine was on its way out so my bro and me started to put in the newis one today,when swapping over all the bits i noticed my engine has a hydrolic tensioner for the timing belt and the new one dose not,is this an older type engine or what,every thing else is the same.
