If you are refering to the plastic guides for the chain tensioner they have been replaced with new ones. I also inspected all parts with the old parts they are correct. It is clear to me when the engine is running the tensior is not working correctly. Can anything else not be working?
How much tension is applied by the tensioner to the chain when oil pressure is applied? If this much tension was applied before the engine was started would it effect the timing of the engine?
