is it worth having on a small block lump ??
my 1400 cambelt dont sit on straight pic below...
the tensioner seems a bit past its best , whines a bit and has play in it, so im fairly sure thats why the belt dont sit on straight.the water pump seems to be square to the block and i cant see what else it could be.
is it worth keeping the auto tensioner ?? early small blocks didnt have it, only seemed to apear on engines 91 ish onwards. what use is it? makes changing belts a doddle if you dont want to move the waterpump... anything else ??
if it aint worth having then i only need a shorter belt ??
whats the gen ??
