Datsun Roadster U20 Chain Tensioner Washer Shim Pack (3) NOT COPPER

Correct and proper reproduction washer set. Yes, when we had the upper tensioner commissioned for production again,(MUCHO BUCKS), we asked for extra washers.
Heat resistant rubber like original Nissan NOT copper washers from Home Depot. Copper will scratch the shaft thus reducing the pressure sealing of the smooth shaft to the smooth bore of the tensioner body
Reduces chain slap at start up and keeps the chain tight. NOT a generic, off the shelf, hard plastic washer. Exact to original in size and function. You may need an extra set if your chain is really lose. You can also use this on the lower tensioner foot as well.

Datsun Roadster 2000 Upper Tensioner Shim Kit W/Gaskets Tensioner not included

Keep your upper tensioner tight and prevent the deadly death rattle that accelerates wear to your, expensive to replace, timing parts. A tensioner that sticks out to far will have to fill each time, thus moving from the relaxed position to the fully, extended hydraulic position, each time the engine starts, with the result of a rattling chain slapping against the guide rails and sprockets. Great little kit for those of you that can't afford new pieces or have worn pieces or an overly planed cylinder head resulting in the tensioner shoe sticking way out.
Directions: Start and run the engine until the oil gauge shows pressure, usually about 15 seconds to 30 seconds. The tensioner is last in line to receive oil pressure. Remove the valve cover and the front access cover. The upper tensioner should be tight against the chain and the chain should be tight on the other side of the cam sprocket. Measure the distance between the back of the shoe and the front of the cast tensioner housing and take note of the distance. Take one of the zip ties and work it through the front of tensioner and loop around the cast housing. Pull and tighten the zip tie as tight as you can make it. Put a rag underneath the tensioner area to keep the bolts from falling down into the engine. Loosen the two bolts and extract the tensioner. Hold the tensioner and cut the zip tie and remove the shoe. Add the washers included in the kit to make up the distance you measured. Put the other zip tie around the assembly and tighten. Reassemble the tensioner/spring, with the gasket supplied, into the engine and tighten down the bolts. Cut the zip tie and assemble the access plate with the new gasket.

Datsun Roadster 2000 Upper Tensioner Shim Kit

3 shims, a rear gasket is supplied so you can renew the gasket & 2 tie strips are supplied when removing and re-installing the upper tensioners.
Before removing the tensioner, run the car to make sure that the tensioner is at maximum tension and has taken up the slack. Measure the distance from the back of the shoe to the body of the tensioner. This is the amount you will need to keep the chain tight.
Now remove the tensioner. Simply slide the tie strip through and around the body of the tensioner and close the shoe to the body. Put something under neath the body when removing the bolts so you don't lose anything down into the motor. After adding the shims repeat the process with the other tie strip to re-install the tensioner

This kit helps the death rattle.
