Autotensioner

Due to water pump failure on my 94' H22A w/103k, I am replacing my timing and balancer belts (which show absolutely no signs of wear). My question is the benifit of swapping to the manual adjuster as it appears that the autotensioner did a fine job so far. I screwed it in and out and it seems to work fine. There was a small amount of residue on the bellows but I wasn't able to add more than a couple of drops of oil. As an average joe who tackled this job, I certainly don't want to get back under the hood anytime soon.

BTW, Snap-On's heavy duty 1/2 " drive impact which is rated at 1100 ft lbs break-away did not budge the crank bolt. Lucky I still had the old IR 3/4"impact available.

Re: Autotensioner

He's asking if theres a point 2 switch 2 the manual tensioner when his auto tensioner has done fine so far. But 2 the op....I think this guy^^^^will be more help 2 ya than I can. Lol And from what I've seen and heard its always a good idea 2 switch 2 the manual tensioner. But I can be wrong

Lol I kinda missed it too at first. But thats what I thought. Just wasnt absolutely positive and didnt wanna give out false info. I've heard alot about the auto tensioners chewing up out timing belts.
