Default timing belt tensioner quivering

Just finished putting my car back together, all components are new and from the factory as always.


After break in process was completed i noticed a clicking/ticking. Looked down (no timing belt covers) and noticed the timing belt tensioner vibrating/quivering. Not the actual tensioner bracket but the window notch bearing area, Is this normal?

I understand that there was a tsb on cam caps having excess material but I've dealt with that in the past and doubt that's the case. It appears once warmed up, aftermarket cams and gears are being used in this application.


Any insight would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Yea it's normal for the spring tang to move around in the little window where it's suppose to be aligned. A clicking noise though, idk bout that being normal. Did u tighten the bolt after set the tensioner?

I tightened all bolts to factory settings along with blue loc tite. There's only 2 bolts excluding the one for the timing cover that I discarded. Maybe it's throwing me off but it just may be coming from the valve cover near cylinder one. Tightened all my spark plugs down securely just to knock that culprit out.

You sure the clicking sound isn't the injectors ? They kinda tick a bit which you can hear at idle.

It's safe to say that this isn't my injectors ticking, I'm very familiar with my FIC tic. Almost sounds like metal tapping (kissing) which leads me to believe its the excessive material on the cam caps. I've dealt with that before and this time it's a bit different and louder though. Can anyone else confirm on the timing belt quivering is normal?
