If you stick with the stock tensioner instead of PorKens' wonderful invention, then add a sealing washer to that tensioner bolt, between the housing and the lock nut. What happens is the oil will leak out of the tensioner at the bolt when you go back in for the belt retension after 1500-2000 miles.

Many thanks again. This will be a lot more fun when the temp in the garage is above 50...Ex- Florida boy.
