    @EatSleepTacos - Randy, when you replaced your idle pulleys, did you replace the tensioner too?

    I ask because all the kits I am finding online include the 3 pulleys, tensioner assembly, and drive belt for around $250...

    I already have the belt, and want to replace mine as economically as possible. They were howling on the way home today...

    I replaced just the bearing in the tensioner with one of these.

    https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/400111524118

    I used a socket to hammer the old one out from the backside, and a bigger socket to hammer the new one in (can’t remember the size). So far it’s working great! My only tip there is the tensioner pulley is held on with a reverse threaded bolt. So you’ll have to turn it right to loosen it. Other than that, it’s just like replacing any of the other three pullies.

    The tensioner is a pain to replace. What randy said is the way to go. I was researching this when I found out my mystery noise was rocks trapped between my skids and exhaust and not my pully bearings.

    I'll go that route. Did you get your OEM parts through Gunny?

    I did not. I wasn’t sure if he was still around or not. Here’s my parts list.

    Replaced my shoes and drums today. I fucking hate drum brakes with a passion now. Learned a lot though and could do another set in half the time.

    Fucking winged the hell outta it. I had a little help from a chrisfix video but it didn’t help as much as I thought. I took pic of it all, and only did one side at a time so I could reference the other side (that saved my ass a few times)

    The reason I hate them now is putting it back together. I got out of order and had to take back out the biggest, strongest spring that was brand new. Talk about an adventure. Had to go buy needle nose vice grips for that one.

    Other adventure was adjusting them. The little access hole is tiny and you can’t see shit. So I had to take the drum back off, figure out how to adjust it blindly, and redo that.

    All in all took about 6 hours, including going to the store to buy the new vice grips.

    It's not as intimidating as I thought though. When I started I was like "Ok where the fuck do I start." I just started taking shit apart until eventually it was all off the truck.

    But you got new vice grips...... Man, I actually love working on drum brakes. But I feel like a part of that is because most people don't know how anymore. Makes me feel all learned and shit. That's what I get for driving old vehicles my whole life. Well, and a Taco....
