Also available is ADM57652 a timing belt tensioner for the Ford Ranger 2.5 and 3.0 TDCi, Mazda BT50 2.5 and 3.0 DT. Blue Print has issued some technical advice in relation to this part, where soft, weak or inadequate belt tension following the replacement of tensioner pulley is a problem.
Blue Print recommends that when fitting a new tensioner, if the tensioner pulley has no resistance, the technician should bleed the air from the pressure chamber using the following procedure before fitting the timing belt.
- Assemble the auto tensioner onto the engine and turn the tensioner with a force of 39Nm or less using an Allen key, then turn it back slowly.
- Repeat this procedure several times and verify that the piston rod has resistance when it is in the projected position.
- If there is no resistance then repeat. Once satisfied that the tensioner is working correctly, proceed with fitting the new timing belt according to vehicle manufacturer’s fitting instructions.
