If you install the second idler. The belt will be to short. Dont need it. Dont think you can even install it .

because even if i do send you a datalogg i will be told to replace some parts before we can move on so im preparing for the hassle of getting tuned ,cuz honestly i dont know who i prefer yet or who im gonna have tune it ...you know tom maybe for someone like you that doesnt live on minimum wage in a state with the highest unemployment rate than yea it would be easy to just dump money that i dont have ,as far as money goes im only 70 $into all my gaskets ;tb,intake,and idle valve as well as the whole timing kit with belt ,so im not that far in , and as far as a logg ive been waiting for the loaner program to get a logg then if i do need a retune i will spend the money ,not everyone is made of money tom ......


and btw when I had the head redone(which i had previously stated if people would actually read all the posts like i do before answering) i didnt replace the intake gaskets and timing belt which are a must in my opinion i just couldnt do it at the time with it being sunday and i worked monday ,so tom that is why they are getting replaced ,because if i had broke a timing belt or blown a gasket while you were tuning it i would have been told to prepare myself better , and would have been a waste of time on both sides



so whats all the talk about? its cheaper isnt it ,and i like to spread my knowledge sorry i asssumed others would to ,have a great day : )

You can't install a second idle pulley. There is no hole to install the pulley. The cougar and focus zetec have different pulley systems

My point was the pictures / movie you posted didnt show anything to me that showed parts were needed hence the why spend the money for parts you dont need , no you dont have to change the belt just because the head was off that depends more on how many miles were on the engine

Im not happy that I was call to the mat for trying to help , I was the one trying to save you money and use the money spent on not needed parts at the time and spend it on stuff you may need , which we cannot tell what that is till you can give more info

I have been trying to talk you into a datalog NOT a tune , I dont charge to look at datalogs for FF guys and tell you what I see wrong to help fix your problem , borrow a xcal2 , xcal3 this would cost you 0.00 even on Min. wage affordable , so please dont make it sound like I am trying to sell you something that you cannot afford

Tom

I give you credit for the work you've done, not many would take that on. I'm not sure people realize you are putting a 1999 Cougar engine in a Focus?
