The Center bolt is holding a spring inside the housing. which pushes on the plunger which pushes on the slipper foot which pushes on the cam chain.
take the center 12mm head bolt out, watch the spring.
remove the two 10mm bolts on the cam chain tensioner body.
remove the body, hold it up and look at the end, you'll see a little pawl holding the rachet on the plunger shaft.
push it with your finger so you can slide the plunger back into the body.
you can put the body back in and torque the 10mm head bolts if you like.
When your finished re-clocking the cam timing. Put the spring back in the body and push. you should see/feel the
plunger "rachet" out.
tighten the 12mm head bolt. or you'll have oil on you foot.
Oh! make sure that all the slack in the cam chain is on the right side as you look at it. or bettween the crank and the intake cam.
cuz thats where the cam chain will take up the slack..right.
