Merc Vito 110 CDI 1999


Just rebuilding my engine after having the cylinder head off and can't get the cam chain chain tensioner installed. I am doing it with the engine in place theough the drivers wheel arch but can't get it far enough in to engage the thread. Its quite tight so there is not much room to manouver or get any purchase on it.

Does anyone have any tips for installation or have I missed something?

Any help much appreciated.

Kenny

I haven't done the chain on one of these engines but they usually have a mechanism to lock the tensioner back whilst you install it. Can you do it on these, and have you?

Are the threads still good in the holes, or did they get damaged when you removed it?

sorry if that is either patronising or irrelevant but look for the obvious solution first
