I really, really, really didn't want to re-do my timing for at least another 70K but I don't know that I can trust this damned Gates tensioner now. I was very close to ordering all Ford/Motorcraft parts but since everyone seemed to have such good things to say about Gates I went against my better judgement and now Its going to mean re-doing my timing. I guess its better than dealing with bent valves and a busted head though ...
