Function of a tension pulley

The primary function of a tension pulley is to provide tension to the belt, ensuring it stays engaged with the pulleys on the engine components. This allows for proper power transfer and prevents slippage.

  • Noise, such as squeaking or grinding
  • Excessive belt wear
  • Decreased performance of engine accessories
  • Visible damage or wear on the pulley
  • Failure of the belt to stay aligned
