On another note I've heard of people using the Gates kit TCK294A but not using the added pulley. But I've also heard that the belt in the Gates kit TCK294B is a different tooth count and length than the one in TCK294A. I used TCK294B with the single idler pulley. It just got me wondering how it is possible to use the longer belt but I guess there is enough articulation in the tensioner for it to compensate. Iminhell any word on that metal tensioner pulley? Car has been running great since I installed the belt just want to be sure I didnt miss something with the tensioner. Once again, I appreciate all of the opinions and if any one else has anything to add its greatly appreciated.
