Hi all,

I have just finished installing my 2nd hand 2.2 907 engine.With the engine I also got a semi automatic cam belt tensioner.

I now have the choice of using the manual one or the semi automatic one.
Any experience on which one is the better , more reliable choice?

Hi Kim,
I replaced all my timing belt and added vernier sprockets with HTD kit from Mike Taylor at Lotusbits and replaced the roller and bearings on the tensioner. He suggested that the manual system is more reliable than the semi auto one.
