Hello all. I have been a die hard 123 owner for 9 years. I recently made the jump to the 126 body. I am finding it to be a world of difference when it comes to repair. I have a few questions.....
My brakes...More often when the outside temperature is cold than warm my brakes seem to pulsate right before I come to a full stop. The pedal also goes low...not LOW, but lower than norma. I am really at a loss to explain this. The brake reservoir is fine, no leaks, new brakes all the way around (previous owner). Any Ideas?
My belt tensioner is crooked a couple of degrees, the spring, shock & pulley look intact. It seems to be the lower piece to which the pulley is attached to the engine block that is bent? or worn. What is this piece and is this what causes the pulley to ride at an angle to where my belt only rides 3/4 of the pulley?? (dangerously close to the fan blade !!)
Thanks for the input. I r & r'd the tensioner lever, spring and shock last night in about 2 hours. I didn't even have to take out the fan or radiator! ! I only had to remove the fan shroud for enough clearance. It was rough at first, but once I figured out what tools to use I was golden.
