I'm new to the group and have a problem with my 1980 Suzuki 550L
that was given to me by a relative.
It started as a starter motor problem... I asked a friend if he could look at it which he did. He fixed the starter. In the process, he removed the
Cam chain tensioner( not knowing what it was)as it was in the way.
He then started bumped the starter motor a few times without having the Tensioner in place. The motor locked up .
Later, I found that it was locked up due to the chain bunching up somewhere in the bottom. I then Attempted to put the chain tensioner back in and it did not take up the slack. Maybe it needs to be put back in
in a certain way/ timing position. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for any input.
