I understand what he is thinking...but what we are saying now is...with these new BilletFlow and Metco upper idlers..the wrap is increased, spreading the load evenly around the pulley/snout instead of on the top half only like the factory does. So we dont have to have tons of pressure now on the belt tensioner to stop the dreaded belt slippage.BlownCobra said:Magnuson believed that it was posible to put too much pressure on the blower snout.
I agree with IWRBB, My post was that it is posible to put too much pressure on the snout. That said, I am not sure if you have too much tension, and this is compounded with a wraping device that allows for more surface area to be covered that the bearing would not fail prematurely. Harry you are saying that it is a benefit, because there is more surface area covered and therefore better distrubution of pressure???IWRBB said:Belt tightness and belt wrap and two different things. As long as you run the stock tensioner in the middle of it's range, you should be fine.
