    Went up visiting family for the Holiday so went out to see my Dad..

    Scattered his ashes years ago on top of the hill in the background. This was/is our shooting spot for decades.. Was nice to be up there with him again.

    So coming back down from the mountains over New Years I broke my 3rd S/C tensioner. Made it home luckily, but tore into it to fix and upgrade things so this hopefully wont happen again. Ordered an upgraded Tensioner from Steeda. Same as our trucks but for a Mustang, just has a chunk of billet burned onto it to help brace it and make it more rigid and eliminate the weak points in the casting. Just needed to modify (grind for clearance) the S/C tensioner bracket and trim the spring on the Steeda itself. Took the opportunity to replace all the bearings in the engine and S/C Idlers as well, including both tensioner pullies. I also wanted to be able to use a factory 5 rib S/C belt.. so I gathered parts to do the pulley wrap mod @BillDaCat8 came up with so I can run a factory 70.5" belt and not have to cut off any ribs. I also picked up 2 new belts, for the engine and S/C. Between all these fixes and upgrades, this should help prevent anymore stress in the system and hopefully help with any belt slip I was getting in the S/C system.. if I was getting any.

    I pressed out and in all the bearings at the shop with the press, and gathered all the random hardware and parts I would need to reassemble. During the installation of the engine tensioner pulley, I set the torque wrench to the Spec'd 27ftlbs.. and it snapped the bolt. I even tested at 10ftlbs prior and it went fine. So.. reassembly stopped and a new engine tensioner ordered. I need to unbolt and move the Alternator and AC compressor to gain access to the tensioner bolts. I'll tear down everything, replace, reassemble, and install the new Steeda tensioner and do the pulley wrap mod last. Hoping to get this all buttoned up for KOH.

    Spacers/washers were required to get the spacing correct with the new bearings for the Idler #1. You can see the old Idler #1 bearing has a sleeve that sits proud of the bearing race on each side. I had to add about .080" total of thickness to get the Idlers back into the correct spot. before and after below..

    Might've been weakened over time from the 2 failures, or is this not for the S/C?

    I’m suspicious of that 27 ftlb spec. Reverse thread, right ?
