I recall the occasional kinks from the slack piling up in there, but don't recall that ever causing a jumped tooth when I futzed around releasing it.

But on reflection, my kinks have been from when I was putting on the cam wheels, with no idler yet, or at least without doing anything with it, so no timing was involved yet.

I don't use mechanical tensioners to do the tensioning when setting the cams. Since I don't have to remove anything to install the tensioner, I'm not going to have the problem.

But always good to know something more.
