It may be that there is no slack noticable, a good sign. Agree change the CCT anyway since it has no dots (old original design). Be sure to ty-wrap the chain at the crankshaft end to prevent the chain from drooping down off the crank sprocket while you have no tension on the CCT when you release it. Also agree that the strange noise may be coming from elsewhere, but let's eliminate the CCT first.
