H22 Timing Tensioner

KS Tuned's new H22 Timing Tensioner directly replaces the stock H22 auto tensioner and eliminates the annoying H23 manual tensioner conversion. The stock H22 automatic tensioner, also called a hydro tensioner is known for premature failure, causing bent valves at the least. The H22 Timing Tensioner eliminates the need for an H23 manual tensioner conversion. Instead of spending your time reading how-to articles, this tensioner allows you to simply remove two bolts and replace your failed tensioner with one that can never fail! Never use H23 manual tensioner conversion parts again! For nearly a decade now, H22 guys have had the problem of failed auto/hydro timing belt tensioners.Brand new, OEM tensioners often fail in a matter of months, leaving you dead in the water with bent valves. In the old days, we would use the H23 manual tensioner parts, which had a host of annoyances. Installation was time consuming and there are a lot of little parts involved in the conversion. The H23 tensioner spring can come off it’s post and get chewed up by the timing belt. And most importantly the H23 tensioner pulley was larger which made installing the timing belt a real pain! CNC machined from billet aluminum with a hardened tension rod and jam nut. The custom-made adjustment wrench included with each tensioner makes for an easy, five minute installation during a timing belt change.
