Cambelt tensioner upgrade


Recommended Posts

I’m installing a blue belt and changing the tensioner from semi to manual. 

I have to drill the block and tap to 10mm and just wanted to check the location of the new hole. I’m pretty sure I have it right but wanted to know if anyone has done this upgrade just to confirm the location.

The best way to locate the hole is with use of an air-con bracket, that will have a hole in a long (c50mm) block of steel, so not only put the hole n the right place but also keep it perpendicular to the face.

Thanks Andy. I have an aircon bracket from the red car engine. I will take a look at that as a locator and pilot drill guide. Good call. I suppose the other block must already have it then. Will take a look.
