    Very keen eye, the previous owner did say the tensioner was swapped by his previous owner. I am hoping to change it back to the correct type, seeing as I am changing the block anyway for one of the 750cc kits from mike.

    The clatter you're hearing now could be due to a missing copper damper washer on the tensioner's plunger .....

    It seems many find this copper washer missing and the tensioner can click like loose valves if it is.
