To Bstew 7890 . Try the "Grambo Trick" described below first, before going to the trouble of replacing springs. I feel the problem is crancase oil sludge forming around the springs over time and the " Grambo Trick " seems to loosen it up and frees the springs to do their work. When oil sludge is cold it is hard causing spring restriction, when the engine warms up the sludge gets soft and the springs are able to work thru the warmer softer sludge. More frequent oil changes will help reduce oil sludge build up. This is my feeling on the matter, the "Grambo Trick " worked well for me, no more click noise at cold start up. Just type in "Cam Chain Tensioner" in this web sites search engine and get the detail on how to perform the " Grambo Trick ". It is very easy to perform, only took me 20 minutes. Good Luck.
