    Posted: May/15/08 at 6:18am
I've contacted Alta and have arranged for us to get a group buy on the Detroit Tuned Tensioner Stop. Their normal price is $19.99 plus $8.25/each shipping however they have offerred to sell as a group buy for $19.00 and only $8.25 shipping total for an order of 10+. They don't make much on the part, but have still offerred the $1 discount. The big savings is on the shipping since it will only be $8.25 for the entire order rather than $8.25 for each if you orderred on your own. If you don't have this you should. See part and description at the following link: http://www.altaminiperformance.com/products/show/432/Detroit-Tuned-Tensioner-Stop
 
I'm getting 2 and MiniCharley is in for 1. Anybody else? Let me know.

I need to know more about the tensioner before I decide to buy one.  I suppose there will be someone to talk to at the Haulin’ Ash Wine Tour this weekend?  I guess it would be a good idea to install this the same time I change my belt (if I end up going that route)?  Is a tensioner stop really necessary if the belt is replaced periodically?  I've never had a belt break on me yet... 

 
I’ve read mixed reviews on whether I should change out my stock belt or not with a shorter belt since I now have the 15% pulley.  I'm not sure if I wanted to try to tackle this on my own.  Confused I really don’t need to have parts laying around if I’m not capable or confident of doing the work myself.  How much would it cost to pay someone for the installation(s)?  Hope to talk more about this on Saturday...
 
Thanks for the heads-up on the group buy,
Brenda

Maybe we could do a "Belt Changing / Tensioner Stop Cable" install party somewhere - if we could set it up like an assembly line it would go fairly quickly and we coud get a lot of cars done.  Thoughts?

That wouldn't be a bad idea. I should have some experience by then since I need to do mine prior to June track day.

I'll buy it if I can manage to install it myself...  Oh geez, go ahead and order one.  I guess I'll manage somehow. Confused  I suppose it can't be too much worse than installing a rear sway bar (although I did have Pat/onramp's guidance and tools)?

Anybody else want in on this group buy. Pretty cheap insurance against damage from belt failure. By my count I have 10 confirmed orders (minimum needed to get the group rate). Let me know if any others want to be included before I call in the order Tuesday AM. Any changes to the current order list let me know today. Thanks!

Love the idea of an install party.  That'll give me a chance to get a new shorter belt, too, since I'm running stock length, plus stretch at this point, I'm sure.  :)

Thanks very much!  Can I send the money via PayPal, or would you prefer a check?
 
If the latter, I just need an address, please.  OR I can bring it to the Run for Paradise...
 
Thanks again,
