I'm pretty sure the belt tensioner is bad but I just want to double check myself.
I have a novi 2000 and i replaced the belt today with another gates and at high RPM's it squeals like a pig so I took it back home and popped the hood and looked at everything and noticed the tensioner was jumping alot....
So my question is,how much movement should the tensioner have if any???

Don't want to invest too much into this because I am getting the BGG 8 rib set up soon.

What size pulley are your running? With 80 lb injector is has to be pretty small. If it is there isn't much you can do except going to a bigger s/c pulley and an overdriver pulley on the crank or an 8 rib system.

basically you need to check and make sure it's also jsut not the idler pully on the tensioner. But yes if they start to fail they will cause all kinds of squalling and slippage.
