B Series B16 B18 B20 Manual Timing Belt Tensioner For Honda Acura Civic GSR Si
Applications: All B-Series Honda/Acura engines. Please note that power steering must be deleted and timing belt cover must be removed.
We developed our Manual timing belt tensioner because all the available ones that are for sale on the market have many fitment issues that require end user to modify or trim part of the cylinder head and block if you install one of these on a GSR ls/vtec b20/vtec etc you know what I am talking about this to us is simply unacceptable so we spend the last 4 months working with our CNC guy and develop this product. Honda and Acura B-series especially ones with high duration camshaft or milled heads are known to Slap excessively along the long front side of the timing cover. This excess slack in the timing belt can cause the belt to skipping one or more teeth on the cam gears. A skipped tooth caught in time can result in a loss of a race due to reducing engine power but if not caught it can result in the piston to valve contact which requires an engine overhaul. This can all be prevented by installing our manual timing belt tensioner, our tensioner will properly support the front side of the timing belt to take away the slack. The unit bolts up directly to the stock Honda block and replaces the lower power steering bracket. Please note that the tensioner will require the delete of the factory power steering system and removal of the timing belt cover.
