I'm kind of lost here. I ordered the part and now looking through the posts I realized that I don't have any weird vibrations at 6-8 thousand but at idle it ticks. I have an 09 Daytona. Is the tick at idle normal?

Sorry if I missed this on the previous 38 pages...

Just curious... what is the purpose of setting the timing marks at the beginning of the whole procedure?

I'm thinking that the tensioner should work regardless of the position of the timing chain.

Is aligning the timing marks just a way to confirm that the timing cams haven't slipped during the swap? Such that you check the timing marks at the end of the tensioner swap, to make sure everything is still kosher?

Or is there something special at TDC, such as the cam chain being the loosest there and starting with the tensioner from that point?
