Default Adjusting CCT

Does anyone know if this works i found it on the sticky CCTL thread but i didn't see any replys about it working and is this for an automatic tensioner or manual?

thats an automatic chain tensioner but ive never heard of this so i dunno if it works. If it did id imagine someone would make a screwdriver like that to sell so people could manually tighten their ....automatic....cct . If youre gonna be doing that you might as well just buy a manual cct to begin with since its the same thing and you dont need to go and make your own little screwdriver.

He's referring to the CCTL, cam chain tensioner lifter. The CCT or cam chain tensioner in on the inside of the motor, next to the chain.

I have done this and it seems to be quiet for now 2k miles since, this was after
I put a new oem cctl on with the uncle jeff mode to the tip worked fine for about 5k
then it started making some noise so I took it out to see if the tip was loose, tip was
still solid so I put it back in and took a small screwdrive and tightened it.

My stock CCTL went out at 7k...I replaced it with the latest revision (J24) and now at 11k this new one is shot...Is it as simple as taking off the nut and getting a screwdriver in there and turn clockwise until its tight and you cant turn anymore?

Why would you guys keep buying an automatic cct or keep fixing your busted cct thats not doing its job. If you have to keep tightening it youre better off buying a manual cct that is meant to do that and designed to be manually adjusted.

You turn it counter clockwise, it's pretty firm I only turned it a 1/4 turn.
