beside the two new tensioner hands, did u have to put in the other big piece too?

I did, but the p/s pulley is still off. It still doesn't line up with the blower pulley. Anyway, I put in the spacer washers and they lined it up almost perfectly. I put a new belt on and I haven't thrown it yet. Last time I put in a new belt, I didn't have the spacers and I threw it right away. I think the alignment is way off without the spacers. I'll take some pics if you need it.tt061880 said:beside the two new tensioner hands, did u have to put in the other big piece too?
that's not good....tt061880 said:for those that have the new tensioner unit, if you havent put them on, take a look at them. The two pulleys dont' align with each other
Which 2 pulleys? The tensioner and idler pulleys? Mine look fine. I had to do some spacing with the p/s pulley though. It was still way off. All looks good now.tt061880 said:for those that have the new tensioner unit, if you havent put them on, take a look at them. The two pulleys dont' align with each other
I noticed that also. I think it's because the SPACER for the smaller 2.0" idler pulley is over torqued into the longer adjuster scissor plate. The only part I used from the new tensioning system is the fixed scissor plate withe the reinforced enter hole. Everything else I reused from the older stuff. I hate the new hex bolts so I also reuse the older onestt061880 said:this is what I meant
has anyone spoken to Keith about this?tt061880 said:damn it, so much for "redesign" the damn thing, wtf were they thinking???
What spacer are you talking about? the samller pulley doesn't bring one.tt061880 said:well the problem isn't big, you just need to use the spacer for the smaller pulley but I don't think that it's our job to do so, the tensioner should be come ready to be use, not to be modify again
I'm planning to but i really haven't had time off at work. Test and tune night is still Wednesdays and Fridays right?tt061880 said:the smaller pulley doesn't have one, that's why it's off, I haven't had the setup on but if you want to use the new tensioner, u gotta compromise it, im sure the spacer will be needed.
OT: ocorzo do you ever head up to ft lauderdale or wpb or moroso? I really want to race against another JRSC RSX
