Notice how there is a little plastic tab on the fancy tie wrap. Use a small screwdriver to hold it up to remove the strap and then pimch the thing a ceran way and it does not come off to bad at all.
I like the way the Metco bolts on , is colser th the blower pulley than Billet flows, the idler is hard anodized, but I think Metco is not using the corrct bearing and there Bracket is a good 2 lbs heaveiey than it has to be. I had fun with a Bridgeport and took care of that problem!
I have the BilletFlow Idler and i never had to take the plastic piece off or modify it in any way. I had the SFP 100mm idlers laying around so i used that instead of the stock idler it came with. Talk about belt wrap!
