One of my customers cars broke a tensioner and I'm having a hard time finding it. Willing to pay $60+, and I'd rather not do an electric swap.

I will have one in a month or so. I realize the owner wants it sooner, but that is the best I can do, unless some fresh meat shows up in the local yards.

PostSubject: New HD Cooling Belt Tensioners - extinct?   Searching for HD cooling tensioner Icon_minitimeTue Jun 26, 2018 6:09 pm

Howdy - it appears it's been a while since this topic has been brought up.

Has it been confirmed throughout the whole whale universe that there are no known new/NOS HD tensioners out there?

Today I discovered a '96 at a local repair shop, the car's been down for 5 or six months, mechanic said they have looked everywhere.

Thought I might be able to help by looking here...

They have been unavailable new or aftermarket for years.

Sadly, Tom's kind lead did not work out, so I am still looking for an HD tensioner if anyone has one.

Has anyone looked to see if the one could be made? Perhaps the spring can from another application with a machined or fabricated mount and arm? What makes that unit so unique?

I thought of that as an option, but have not investigated it. The mount is a unique part, but the rest of it may be just as unique. The pulley is also unique, as far as I can determine. It is a small ribbed pulley. The unit can be disassembled with a Torx bit.

Look at one from a 99-06 GM truck with the 5.3. The pulley might just swap over and the spring could be swapped as well if you're very careful. Yes, the spring (and whatever they use for dampening) does wear.
