[ROVERNET - UK] Renolds timing chain tensioner.

I have two types of tensioners.  The original worked
like this:
1.  Unscrew the hexagonal head cover plate
2.  Use a hexagonal Allen key (you have to determine
which one) and insert it into the recess you created
3.  Turning the screw one way pulls the pad in and
turning the other way, turns the pad out.

The non-adjustable type required me to use some light
string (in case some fell into the sump) to tie the
pad backwards and close to the assembly.  (What a
nuisance - why couldn't they all be as original  :-(
