My mechanically minded mate was looking over my engine and replacing the power steering belt earlier this evening, whilst he was checking it out, he noticed the can belt tensioner had some play in it and looked crappy - something i wasnt told when i had cam belt changed b4 xmas.
How much for a belt tensioner and the other little jockey wheel by the water pump for the C20XE ?
My car aint goin to have any red light races till this is sorted.
you can get both the early and late type from SBD, i have an early engine with all steel rollers, one piece. later engines had 2 piece construction with metal race and bearings with plastic sleeve. my early type cost me 100 quid total for the idler and tensioner. the later type are detailed on their web space here
