Just a bit curious, does the 1700 have the same issues with the cam chain tensioners as the 1500/1600 engine?
The 1500/1600 is known to need extensions to the chain tensioners in some cases, is it a similar scenario with the 1700 engine? :confused:

220,000 miles on my 1700 and last I checked the cam chain tensioners hadn't moved. Likely because it doesn't use roller chain like the 1500/1600 does, the 1700 uses multi-link 'hyvo' chain.
