I officially hate the early tensioner. I know I posted the question before, but this time I would like to see a blow out of the late style tensioner with all the bracketry that connects to the block and how the tensioner attaches. I want to know how involved and expensive the conversion is. Thanks. Michael ps jaffe dot michael1 at g mail dot com. Thanks.

That would be an interesting conversion if you could get the same tension out of the new style yet not have to deal with the extra shock.

did you get it connected? i had a few problems with trying to get mine off and the new one back on... the way they designed it was indeed retarded.

i anticipated it taking me about 2 hours max, but it took me all night and i was working in the dark to finish it up :(
