If you read the post it will state that i installed a Rodney idler pulley but it’s all i figured it out m8x1.25 is the thread pitch for the pivot bolt. Installed a longer bolt and lock washer with nut on the back side so it wouldn’t loosen up. Belt is only 2 months old
Hi, I think you might have misunderstood me. I saw that you installed the Rodney Dickman idler pulley. But the Rodney Dickman product I was referencing in my link was something different. This is an additional item that goes onto your alternator bracket that reinforces the bracket so that there's no deflection. I've seen on a couple of Fieros that I've bought that this bracket is bent, and the alternator sits at a slight angle, which can cause premature wear and the belt to squeal.
