Manual Cam Chain Tensioners Too Long.

Has anyone installed the Manual Cam Chain Tensioners from Schnitz Racing?

I tried this weekend and they work fine with one exception, the rear tensioner bolt sticks out too far to reinstall the coolant reservior.

Does anyone else have this problem?

The rear cylinder seems to be the problem and here are a couple of solutions..

"the only thing is i had to make a small spacer and go with a longer bolt to move the coolant tank back a bit so it didn't contact #2 cylinders tesioner bolt ."

or..

One problem is they are to long. The coolant reservoir will not fit without cutting the adjustment bolt off. I sawed off the bolt and will replace the end with an acorn nut. I have taken a lot of digital pictures. How do I post the pictures here?

Thanks Dianna, I shimmed the coolant tank, I think I like that solution better, I may try the saw during the summer when the weather is nicer.
