No, Mango, it was just that one night...and nothing against the Capt., but really wasn't my cup of tea! all three pulleys...find out which tensioners you have first (mirror and good led flashlight)...get the right pulleys.

FYI my mechanical tensioner is still good and undoubtedly original...I replaced my hydraulic tensioner when I first came to fanatics coz 'they' scared me into doing it, but don't think you have to. The pulleys are really doing most of the work I think...spinning around a billion times. The tensioner pretty much just tensions, so I don't think it wears down particularly fast. Of course, it won't hurt to change it, but I don't think you 'have' to.
