"Sure it's Stock... Wanna race?"
Q: if the issue is the belt going loose because its forcing the tensioner out of the way, could you go with a slighlty shorter belt to place the tensioner closer to its "max tension" setting?Yea, I hope to have some fun like that on Sunday ... let these guys think they're gonna whoop up on that pathetic old 4.6L Thunderbird.
They won't be fooled for long :tongue:
I had a scare with it yesterday. I went to start it and it backfired and started "clicking" or "clacking". I shut it down and called Rob he said pull the belt and see if the sound goes away. So I did and the motor ran fine. So we trouble-shot it down to the pulley system. The blower turns by hand freely (we thought it might be the blower coupling). So, no problem there.
Long story short, just to be safe, I had it towed down to Robs and he seems to think that the stock tensioner may be undersized for the load that the new engine puts on it. So it's good to go for Sunday, I'll look at getting a better tensioner in the spring.
