    im doing a auto-manual tensioner conversion on my h22, im using this guide http://www.collectiveracing.net/crforum/ho...dd34646680fc4ce

    which balance shaft tensioner should i use my h22 one or do i need a h23 one? this is what they have said

    "Next we will install the balance shaft tensioner pulley. For this install, we will re-use the H22 part. The H23 part has a larger spacer that places it further out away from the timing belt pulley. I recomend using the H23 part (not shown), but with a few washers (used as spacers) the H22 pulley (pictured) can be used correctly"

    if i don't run the balance shaft belts but leave the BS in and gears on will i not need this BS tensioner on or will the bolt be too long then and will need washers/spacer

    Another problem I've read about is the tri-pod piece which has a bolt which does not allow the tensioner bracket to move fully. here is a link to the thread which explains it better http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t...ove&page=10

    im having it done on mine atm bud am i right in thinking this will allow you to rev higher safely? i tuned is doing mine and has experience doing them pm him mate

    not sure if it will allow you to rev higher by only changing to manual tensioner but the manual tensioner can take more abuse (high reving) then auto tensioner.

    yea thats what i meant bud so it will allow more abuse as the auto ones can leak from the seals an risk slipping a belt . my redline is 8.8 so it will be ssfer to rev mine that high
