Jeep Grand Cherokee alternator bracket has a tensioner built in. I was planning to put that on my 4.0 if I end up swapping it in. You'll have to drill and tap 1 hole into the front of the head for and idler pulley. It's pretty easy.

daddyjeep87 Anyone near NW PA need a good tub? I am working on a deal for this thing and I don't need the tub and it is quite nice. I was considering cutting a portion of the top rail out in case I stretch my tub, but this one is too nice to cut up.

I dont know if anybody honestly makes replacement glass other than the blue tarp and duct tape methods.

mark1305 That was a great movie. Back then I had a Yamaha DT 360 for awhile. Then a '72 Kawasaki H2 750 (the highest hp year for that model). The Kaw got the head milled a little to raise compression when I had to tear into it for a blown crank seal. Great bike - in a straight line

Awesome Nice. Showed my dad. He used to run Enduro races through the Baja/Mojave desert during that time. They were more like the European race mentioned in the video, but only a few hours long.

Chrisnvegas For your viewing pleasure. On Any Sunday. 1971
Back when everyone knew which bathroom to use, before trigger warnings and before crazies ruined much of California.
The off road portion of this film would not be possible today. They might run over and injure a rare weed or fruit fly.
Highlights: Opening scene, piles of slippery oil dry on the track? No big deal. Two stroke street bikes? Yep. Yamaha RD's Kawasaki triple 750's and Suzuki Ram Air!

I had an XR75 and wanted to race but my Dad wouldn't let me. He was right, as a 12 year old I would have been run over and killed!
This was the free-for-all that was the... 1970's.

Turns out my squeak IS a belt squeak, caused by the dry bearing being out of tolerance and wobbling slightly under the belt. So I gave up and bought a new pulley.

FYI you can get OEM metal pulleys from Dayco.

I don't know what a dub show is, but I can guess.
Guess again. While reality may different than you’d expect, it might be worse. http://www.dubshowtour.com/dst/ It’s a noisy rancorous hip hop haven of plastic ‘hot rods’ with blue tooth windshield wipers and more under hood carbon fiber than a weekend golf course
Click baited me. I was expecting really well thought out Vdub camping Vans.

I thought about using a Chebbie tensioner from a mid 90's 1500 5.7. Like most things I "think" about, never came to fruition.
