pretty sure the arms dont fit, 7 has a wider track than the 4

Aux tensioner should be fine

Leaving the bolt out to me is a terrible idea, if nothing else it will make the rotating mass unbalanced, but also that lump is rotating at upto 7500 rpm, 1 less bolt is relying on the remaining bolts more than was designed to. Why is the bolt coming out, fix the problem is the only acceptable answer IMO

Just sorted arms thanks.as for bolt had bottom end rebuilt and since they did that and changed clutch it keeps comeing out.the fly wheel bolt hole is chewed up inside main bottom end so out off options.as cant be re done.i dont like ide but only thing can do.asked several mexhanics and a specalist.they said can run with 6 as they are sutuaited in position that will not affect the fly wwheel or cluch.so all can do is fit it all when get a few spare days as got hole engine out as redoing loom and clean up of hole lot.

Has bearing gone tensioner? If so why not just change that?

You can helicoil the flywheel bolt hole and it can be done in situ with the clutch off.
