Default help needed

I installed a bob newby belt drive system on my 67 triumph TR6. The issues I am having is the hole where the chain tensioner abutment use to be installed now leaks oil. I tried driving out the abutment from the old chain-tensioner and reinserting it back into the hole in the primary, but it wont stay. It's very loose and falls out. Any suggestions on what to do?

Sometimes they crack on the case where the plug goes in. You can run these without oil no?

Some are wet dry , some are made for oil. I assumed your using oil because they're is no place for oil to come from a dry primary except crank seal or trans mainshaft bushing .all those tensioner parts don't penetrate the crankcase sounds like something is leaking.
