TracTuff Belt Tensioner Turnbuckle
Every now and then I come across a post on social media where someone is using the street k series water pump delete and the tensioner is completely MAXED out! Usually this comes down to the owner having picked the wrong belt length and tried to make up for it with the adjuster/ tensioner. Perfectly fine as long as the rod-end has a few turns (at least 4-5 turns) into the turnbuckle, but if its hanging off the very end and the rod-ends are not straight... your asking for problems!
Assuming you cannot find a belt that brings the tensioner back into the short or middle end of its range, I now offer this as an alternative. The original turnbuckle is 3.25" long and this optional piece is 4.30" long; the extra inch will really help unsure you don't pull the thread out of the ends on a maxed out assembly and keep you from certain failure!
