How tight is your manual tensioner?

So while installing my APE Manual CCT, I felt that it is pretty far in.

Is this normal?

Impossible to say without knowing how long the bolt is...

Re: How tight is your manual tensioner?

mine is a bit further out but i still get a little rattle so it needs probably a half turn more. i'd say from what i can see it looks fine. as long as it's just tight enough to stop it from rattling why worry?
