I am about to unspring the tensioner now by pulling the pin, but it seems like there is too much slack even with the belt run correctly. Am I supposed to use a male t60 on the right of the tensioner before pulling the pin? Thanks for your help.
Ok so I got some slack out, stripping both the male and female t-60 bolts/slots on the new tensioner. How do you pull the pin when you cant take some load off the spring? its too tight to get any real pull on it from a vertical angle. How have you solved this dilemma?
