Can a Automatic Cam Chain Tensioner(ACCT) just be bad
I was wondering if its possible for the ACCT that is OEM, to just be bad, and not extend far enough to keep tension on the chain, and therefore keep it from slapping around.. I have a 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 (28k miles), and keep getting a tapping / knocking.. not sure which side its coming from as no matter where i stick my head, its sounds like that's where its coming from.. I removed both of the Tensioners to look at them.. I did the Grambo trick as well, and both springs seem to spring right back.. i did notice that the one from the right side of the bike, looks like its about 1/16" shorter as far as the amount of distance the plunger is sticking out.. are these adjustable at all? sorry for being a noob, just never dealt with this issue before.. purchased the bike, and the guy i got it from said that's just a normal sound from the Vulcan engines, and me being an idiot, believed that..
