Re: cam chain tensioner removal
There is a cam chain retainer that pretty much traps the cam chain on the cams, so jumping time is very unlikely.
Just don't rotate the cranks and you should be fine.
As far as putting the CCT back in, there is a cap on the end of the CCT that needs to be removed. Under that cap there is a slot like for a screwdriver. That is what you use to back off the CCT spring. It's a bit tricky because it requires you to hold that spring back while you install the CCT. Otherwise the CCT will be fully extended. You do NOT want it fully extended while you screw the CCT back onto the block. It takes a pretty small screw driver to back off the spring in the CCT.
You should do this yourself. Don't have the welder do it.
