The tensioner is good for maintaining proper valvetrain events and cam timing (there is a sensor there tracking it for many purposes); the damper is only good for keeping the chain from becoming bungled and whipping itself off and into an early grave. In short: chain stretch bad.
Does anybody have the part# fir the windage tray that comes with the gm pan kit? I have the pan and pickup tube, but no tray. I've spent alot of time trying to locate the correct part#, searched different forums, etc with conflicting results. Any help is appreciated!
Well....i ended up answering my own question while on the quest to locate the correct windage tray for the GM LH8 oil pan. After reading many threads on LS1tech, i called the dealer and got the info i needed.
That being said, if anybody doing an LS swap has the hummer pan, but no windage tray, its readily available. I got mine from summit since i was ordering other stuff anyway. Attached is the part #, and the description clearly states the application. Hope this helps guys.
