Bob walks us through a Harley cam chain tensioner inspection, a common issue on the Twin Cam 88. He removes the exhaust, floor boards and everything in the way of the cam cover. At the cam cover, he reminds us to remove bolts in a star or cross pattern to ease pressure evenly. With the cover open we can see the cam tensioner shoes, if the front is in bad shape the rear might be as well. To see the rear with out removing the rocker box use a flash light and mirror.
