Do I need different idler pulleys? Or do I keep the stock ones?

I changed the belts to GT2 fiber glass re-enforced ones. As I remember it the pulleys is still from the original kit, but years has gone since I made this upgrade... ;)

Thank you for the very fast reply! I will just order the parts listed and update my comment to let everyone know if different idler pulleys are needed :)

That would be great :)

Great design.
Any chance you could upload the Inventor files?

Thank you.
I found the STEP files for that design and uploaded them.
Open in Inventor and save as Part.

Thank you!

For design I use AutoDesk Inventor and it is rather limited in export formats - No Solidworks export.
I often use FreeCAD to convert STL files into other formats - A great free program with a bunch of nice features (http://www.freecadweb.org/).

Is there any way that you can post the solidworks files for these parts? I want to adapt this design into my own parts that I am designing. Great design by the way!!

works fabulous, clever design, just like the X tensioner

Thank you very much for sharing this, I love it, very useful.

verry good idea !!
