Timing Chain Tensioner Jaguar and BMC C series engines (Austin Healey 100-6 and 3000, MGC). The timing chain tensioner maintains the correct tension on the timing chain that will keep the engine crank and camshaft timing constant. Over time, the small hydraulic hole in the chain tensioner can get plugged up so the correct about of pressure will not be applied to the chain. And if the correct amount of pressure is not applied you will hear rattle or rumble that change with engine speed plus the relationship of the crankshaft and the camshaft will not be constant resulting in poor performance. Everytime you change the timing chain this tensioner should be replaced too. Cross Ref.# 011-139, 17H6681, 37H7330, EAC3629
