    With all pushrods adjusted & tappets bled down, turn the engine via the rear wheel to ensure that everything `misses` & turns freely.
    Slip ends of pushrod tubes into their new O rings & secure with keeper.
    Reinstall spark plugs & exhaust system.
    REFILL ENGINE OIL.
    On start up observe oil pressure warning light. Expect some merry clicking from the tappets for a few seconds while they pressurise.IMG_2913.jpg
    Test ride. Then retire & find refreshment.

    Thank you K9F. Rather a long post & apologies for the quality & orientation of pictures. However I hope it might be of use to those with `99-`06 Twin Cams suffering Tensioner Paranoia.

    Cheers,

    Pictures re-loaded; they seem to have stuck this time.

    I should add that the S&S Quickee pushrod kit is excellent quality & comes with comprehensive instructions.
    The kit was sourced from Matt`s Machine Shop. Excellent service & super rapid dispatch from them. I`ll be trying them for parts first next time; it`s clear they stock much more HD stuff than is listed on their website. I have no association with Matt`s Machine Shop. Credit where credit is due.
    Rest of the parts & tools were sourced in US. When looking to bring stuff in, it`s worth remembering that it attracts VAT @ 20%. Also that Parcelforce charge £8 per package to collect the VAT, before delivery.
    Therefore source stuff from as few suppliers as possible to a) obtain postal discounts & b) avoid paying multiples of the Parcelforce £8 charge.
