Timing Belt Tensioner


Recommended Posts

Hi.. I have the early spring tensioner on my S3T and want to swap it out for the later eccentric bolt tensioner and bearing... are there any vendors that dont charge $250 for the set, as I have been quoted? Is there a crossover part available?

thanks Jan

If you set no goals you shall surely reach them..

:blink: I had the belt tensioner go "to toast" on my 1989 Esprit SE. Seems from more than one Internet source claimed that Lotus got it from a Ford Transporter van. I think a 2.3 litre diesel if memory serves me correctly. The year 1981 seems about right.

I could not confirm this part idea because in N. America we never got such a beast. So I ended uo buying it at SJ (in England). It was very close to reasonable from them (maybe $50). . . even with shipping to Canada it was far less than any other Lotus part place I got a quote from. Fast delivery too.
