That is weird, I have the original tensioner and pulleys on mine @ 108K and they are fine. Do you have the belt routed properly?

I cant get to the hole to get the broken bolt out so I have to pull the motor to get to it right? Well I am going to make a bracket with a grade 8 bolt . When I get it done I will post some pics and make some to sell on line..
