Overkill, really. You can stick a 1/2 drive large diameter socket sideways under each ramp for free and do the same thing. Just find a couple that fit snuggly, that take the slack out of the chains.

Thanks for the reply. Can I ask one more question? As this is what you do for a living, can I use your method for a performance cam on a 964 engine?

I have seen other methods used like a steering wheel puller and brake pad spreaders.

Thanks for your help.

Sure. As long as the chains are taut, it doesn't matter what cams you use.

I like that solution !!!
I have always thought the $2K tensioner update is a farce....
