How to search the site

This might help you. This is an example of how you can really search the site. Google can do a really good job:

It's recommended you use a "permanent" thread locker on the oil/flare fitting because you will no longer be able to use an Allen wrench on the modified cam tensioner cap. You could use Vice grips or channel-locks on the cap but that will leave teeth marks.

I hope that answers the question.


Ahhhh now I understand, thanks !!!

No I guess I don't

The HOW says

I removed the tensioner bolt and drilled and tapped the center with 1/8" pipe threads. Next, I drilled a smaller hole the rest of the way through the bolt with a 3/16" inch drill bit to match the diameter of the 3/16" stainless steel flex hose I used for the oil line to the gauge.

My question is about this part...

"Next, I Drilled a smaller through the rest of the bolt"??? How do you drill a smaller hole through a hole that's already there?

Or am I missing something?

Hopefully you didn't drill all the way through the bolt with the larger bit. You only go far enough to tap it for the fitting. I drilled about 3/4 way into the bolt and then drilled the remaining 1/4 way with the smaller bit.

I've not looked at the instructions for drilling the cap but it's usual to drill using the smallest first then work back.
so drill your small hole through then drill your tapping diameter to the required depth.
Only problem being that you can catch with the larger drill and go too deep by accident if your not experienced and using a hand drill.

And then...sometimes I turn into a raging asshole that surprises even me the next day.

My apologies, Ross, and to the rest of the forum for that disruption.

Chuckracer, why you gotta be such a dick? Not everyone is as smart or cool as you. Have some patience with the rest of us retards!

Saw your apology after i posted. Good on you for manning up. I too have been quick to throw dickhead comments around. Ate my words a few times.
