Hydraulic tensioner with relief valve

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6398682.

A hydraulic tensioner includes a relief valve provided at a projecting end portion of a plunger. The relief valve has a pressure path communicating with a high pressure oil chamber, a valve body fitted for sliding movement in the pressure path, a spring for normally biasing the valve toward the high pressure oil chamber, and an outlet port communicating, when the valve body is moved back against the force of the spring, with the pressure path. The valve body is formed as a unitary member including a slidably movable portion fitted for sliding movement in the pressure path and acted upon by a hydraulic pressure of the high pressure oil chamber, and a flange portion having a cross sectional area greater than that of the slidably movable portion for being acted upon by the force of the spring.
