I have an INA tensioner and a Meyle deflection pulley that I had replaced when doing my cooling refresh 31,000 miles ago. When doing my normal inspection this weekend I noticed my pulleys both had play. The INA had more than the Meyle. Actually, INA kept spinning. Decided not to order anything less than OEM, I'll be happily inspecting/replacing these every 30,000 miles or every year for me from now on. I feel these should be inspected by everyone sooner than every 60,000-80,000 miles for the cooling system.
