XUD9 cambelt tensioner

Post by Dyane425 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:00 pm

How many cambelt tensioners does the XUD9 engine have on a BX19 Diesel Non turbo? If more than one, is it the same part number for both?

The cam belt tensioner is spring loaded, after fitting a new timing belt turn the engine over manually using the front righthand wheel in a forward direction with 3rd gear engaged before permenantly locking down the tensioner with the securing nut.
