And in this picture you can see I installed all locking tools and Crank pin... everything lines up perfectly and both tensioners are expanded with no slack on the chain. If I remove the locking tools one side starts leaning off timing typically the cam shafts on right bank passenger side. Because tensioner collapses. Sometimes the left does this and not the right side tensioner.
Love your work.
