How should I design two different chain tensioners to take up the slack with the chain going either direction

The first solution I got was to use a chain tensioner - I know that but I'm wondering how they should be positioned because the pull side will change depending on going up or down

Interesting question, I would think a sprung jockey wheel would work but you don't give much detail of what the use is. I can't help further but here's a link to something that might give you some ideas http://www.cross-morse.co.uk/pdf/TensionersEN.pdf

How do i take the slack out of my timing chain on my 98 Nissan 200sx? i already replaced the upper chain tensioner it was worn to the metal.


can't take the slack out of a stretched chained if you already replaced just the tensioner

did you also look at the other timing chain guides?!? they're plastic covered as well & will eventually wear out in time

I do not know how to replace the chain on a husquavarna 450e chain saw and no one is willing to tell me how to do it.


Before replacing a chain saw chain you must ensure that you disconnect the sparkplug lead. Remove the chain saw cover which is located at the motor end using the tool that came with it. A spanner socket remove the 2 nuts that are the same size and that will loosen the chain arm and chain itself. Note the direction of the chain teeth as the new chain must go back in the correct manner . Now reverse the installation the same way you remove it. After replacing the chain you need to tension the blade allow about a 5 mm slack and there is a tension screw located to the side of the cover you removed. Again it's best to refer to a authorized dealer if unsure.

Cam chain tightness? how too adjust?


The cam chain tensioner is an automatic device. When the chain wears past a certain point and the tensioner can no longer compensate for the slack, it must be replaced.
Failure to replace a slack / worn chain can have severe consequenses, even if the chain does not break.

The chain on my Jonsered chainsaw becomes slack after just a few minutes use.


The chain on a chainsaw expands during use.This is caused by the heat generated by friction with the timber being cut. The chain should be monitored during use and the slack taken up by the tensioning adjustment screw or knob. You may have to loosen the nuts holding the bar before doing this and then tighten them securely. If these nuts are loose the chain can become slack. If you give me the model of the chainsaw I can try and find a manual and check the tensioning procedure as newer models of chainsaws have either automatic tensioning or have a thumbwheel arrangement for doing this.

Noise from timing chain how does the tensioner operate


Depending of the bike , the tensioner should be a Teflon push plate or a metal plate which pushes on the chain to reduce the slack in the chain .Adjustment can be made manually from the back of the cylinders but all tensioner are different .Some do have a spring which could need replacement . sometimes if the timing chain is too old it make noise due to the tensioner out to the maximum tension and does not apply enough pressure on the chain and therefore noise and slight vibration .

Chain


Every 600 miles or 1000 km. Your motorcycle’s Owner’s Manual will have directions. You need to check the tension at several points along the chain’s travel around the engine and wheel sprockets. The tension should be set so that the loosest spot and the tightest spot are still within the slack tolerance specified in the owner’s manual. If the tightest spot is at the tightest allowed and the loosest is beyond the tolerance then it’s time to get a new chain and sprocket set. ,
