  • KRC KRC40400360 Adjustable Idler/Tensioner Assembly, Small Block Chevy
    KRC KRC40400360 Adjustable Idler/Tensioner Assembly, Small Block Chevy
    x
                

    KRC's adjustable idler - tensioner is used to keep proper belt tension and prevent belt slippage when using a mechanical fan. This can occur on both single drive belt and pulley systems that have a steering pump mounted of the front of an engine.

    KRC's idler tensioner is essential on dirt cars. Belt slippage can occur on cars that exceed 7,000 RPM and/or use a large or heavy fixed fan blade or a fan blade with a lot of pitch, which potentially causes overheating & pulleys to wear faster. This occurs on both single drive belt and pulley systems with a power steering pump mounted on the front of the engine. 

    Fan belts and pulleys work to slow down the fan. The belt slips because it is stretching to slow the fan. The belt heats up as the the the stretching increases. The only way to properly tension the belt is with an adjustable idler/tensioner. This keeps the engine running cooler because the belt is tighter. This will allow faster acceleration out of turns and harder braking on corners.

    • Designed for GM 602 & 604 Crate Engines
    • Use with KRC serpentine drive systems
    • Assembly contains:
      • Idler - Tensioner
