Re: Best way to bend chain tensioner?
Put it on and ride it to a neighbor with a torch. If you need to bend right away, take it off and put it in a vise or support and use a soldering torch from the hardware store to heat it. Its thin enough where the heat from propane will help bend it. Just make a line where the bend will be and only apply the heat on that line. Then bend it in a vise using the cresent wrench. I bent something like it with a C-clamp on each end. Let it cool on its own,no water...
