I'm in the process of putting my engine back together.  I acquired an 07 Predator and was questioning the timing chain tensioner.  I had the cylinder replated, new piston, the head rebuilt, and a new timing chain.  My question is, how do I know if the timing chain tensioner is good?  Or do I just replace it along with replacing the timing chain?

if there's a decent sized flat on the tensioner where it touches the guides, replace it. Mine had a small flat and felt like it still pushed hard so I kept mine.

You put a ton of money into it already, why not spend the extra couple bucks for a tensioner? Its an important part (as if some of the parts were not important)

I agree with Orion. Go all new parts on a rebuild like that. I re-used some parts on my rebuild (tensioner included) and I am now planning to go back in there sometime and replace those parts I re-used.

Thanks for the replies.  I already ordered a new one figuring that I spent that much already.
