    In case you dont already know, I like to do things as inexpensively as possible.

    So I decided it was time to put on a chain tensioner. My old method of tighten the chain sucked!

    I went to the local freight damage store and picked u some hard rubbber wheels (2) with real bearings in them.

    Then picked some bolts that fit bearing (metric)

    Bought a clamp for the torsion spring and went to work.

    Cost:
    Wheels: 5.00
    Bolts: 2.50
    clamp: .99
    Total: 8.49

    If you look closely at the bottom you can see the spring in there.

    Well, now I just need to lube up the chain. Install the resistor for the TRE mod and go tear it up!
