Torque Value for the Chain Tensioners?

I canít find it the number in either Bentley or the 101 projects. Does any one know it?

Thanks. That sounds correct. I have new sealing washers installed on the new tensioners.

Also, if anyone wants to know, the new upper right tensioner uses a 14 mm allen head. The old one was a 32 mm hex. I bought the Allen head socket and drove the Allen head out, and it fit right into a 9/16 box wrench/socket. So it installed without having to remove the air compressor. So removal and installing was a breeze - no removal of the compressor required.

Yep, bought my 14mm Allen head socket in 2010. Thats all I use it for. I assume the lower profile allows a little more air circulation in that area.
