changed my serp belt today at 65k mi. used 19mm socket and my torque wrench. man was that a beast. I had to push with both hands and all my weight to get it to move enough to get the new belt one and my son had to slide the belt over the PS pulley as both my hands were full. Maybe I did something the hard way? I have the service book. maybe a longer bar than my torque wrench?
anyway, to my question. of course I checked the pulleys for condition and movement while the belt was off. I noticed that the tensioner pulley while spun smooth, had some play in it. was wondering if this was normal? it didnt wobble, but rather I could move it up/down back/forth a little. not in/out. anyone know? the service manual did not mention this characteristic whether OK or not. thanks!
