Icon5 SOHC Timing Kit Only Comes with ONE Tensioner Washer?

Hi guys, I'm rebuilding my '02 4.0 SOHC and will be putting the new chain tensioners in soon. My timing kit (pictured below) only came with one washer to go around a chain tensioner.. see the washer / o ring in the bottom left of this picture next to the rear jack shaft plug




In fact all the timing kits I can find seem to only come with one chain tensioner washer/metal o-ring. Why is there only one (there's two chain tensioners...) and which tensioner does it go on??

Thanks

I replied to your other thread but will reply here again. During my recent timing chain tensioner replacement, I found the original front timing chain tensioner had a seal washer but the rear one did not. I don't have a clue as to why.
