I am wondering why the new cam chain tensioners always come pre wound up, when I think that if they left it unwound, it might be better for the spring, if they were not being kept under tension, until needed.
Or is it just me?
Any one have any answers?.

Being wound doesn't effect the spring actually. If it's a good quality one. This used to be a discussion with the gun crew and our 45 ACP clips.

Yer makes sense really. I did think it mite be so people dont fit it unwound as well, make it idiot prof.
But then again I like beestoys answer.
Had an opportunity a good few years back to visit the US, me and my brother stayed with are good friend in buffalo.
He took us both to a buddy of his woods and we did some shooting with 45 1911 , some 22, and an Ak74, and an m4 what a day we had, the hole trip was something I will never forget.
