PS tensioner

I made a bo boo when I was working on my cam timing recently.
I forgot to tighten my PS tensioner, and it has jumped ship.
It's a Gti with the slot in which a jockey wheel sits and is adjusted from beneath with a bolt.
I have tried to get another, but no joy.

Q. Does any one know of another vehicle which may use a similar tensioner, Or does anyone have a suggestion for tensioning without using the jockey wheel. ?

TIA
Alf.

Re: PS tensioner

Thanks, but now I know what to look for I'll go to a Yota yard.
Zooks are much sought after here so getting a wrecker to pull a motor apart isn't on. They ask a couple of thou for a Gti motor.
Thanks again,
Alf.

Re: PS tensioner

Alfie,
I checked for the tensioner and could only find the pulley which is a vee belt one. I have no idea what happened to the adjuster [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] I asked a friend of mine who races a GTI but he said the early GTI's didn't have P/S so he had none either. Only thing I can think of is to try partsworld .

Re: PS tensioner

RR the tensioner I had, had a jockey wheel which ran under the belt. So it ran on the flat side of the belt. The belts I use are the micro Vee type as found on Kicks etc.
I'd appreciate a pic.it may help me determine just whether a Toy one is what I want.
But to be honest, if I can find one here it would be less hassle for both of us.

Thanks for the great offer though, it's appreciated very much.
Alf.

Re: PS tensioner

Yep this is the the way the pulley tensioner runs, BUT it is a standard v-belt not a serpentine.
