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.
