You kinda left us hanging. Do you have pics of the rest of the job? If you have time, it would be great if you could to complete this thread.

Here's the parts used in the job...note the two small holes in the front of the tensioner pully. These are used to set the tension on the belt prior to pulling the "pin" out of the hydraulic tensioner.

The Hydraulic tensioner must be removed and the unit is squeezed in a vice until the "pin" can be inserted into the unit to hold it in place. Mitsu has a special tool for this but I found a small allen wrench to work just fine.

Use paper clips to hold the belt in place while installing. Always double and tripple check all the marks. These photos are not at the best angle and you will need to use a manual to get it right.

Here's how I set the tension. Mitsu has a "special tool" for this as well that fits on a 1/4" ratchet and has two pins that insert into the tensioner bearing. I found a pair of needle nose pliers work fine for the job and I was able to get more than enough torque on the bearing to set the tension. Once tension is set the Pin can be removed and engine rotated two full rotations re-check all 5 timing marks for alighnment (4 cams and crankshaft) and also check the tensioner. you should still be able to freely insert the pin or (allen wrench) into the tensioner. If you cant insert the pin refer to your manual for min/max clearance between tensioner and pivoting tensioner bracket if its within spec your good to go, if not re-set tension and try again.

When the belt is on and pin removed your engine should look something like this but hopefully without all the red dirt and mud <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Great photos. I love the "high tech" tools, especially the "paper clips" and the needle nose pliers. A few questions.

1. When you applied the "torque" to the needle nose pliers, did you do that with just the pliers? Or did you grab them with another wrench? And could you describe in words how hard you "wrenched" on the pliers?

2. I see that you replaced a lot of items with pretty new parts, but you chose to use the old tensioner. What was your reasoning for reusing that part?

3. Did you really turn the engine through two revs? If so, how did you rotate it? With the crank bolt?

I ACTUALLY LEARNED THE NEEDDLE NOSE AND PAPER CLIP TRICKS FROM A MITSUBISHI MASTER TECH BELIEVE IT OR NOT. I ASKED TO BORROW HIS SPECIAL TOOL AND HE TOLD ME TO JUST USE NEEDLE NOSE.

1. When you applied the "torque" to the needle nose pliers, did you do that with just the pliers? Or did you grab them with another wrench? And could you describe in words how hard you "wrenched" on the pliers?

JUST THE PLIERS, HOW HARD??? HARD TO TELL BUT IT WAS HARD ENOUGH TO KEEP IT IN SPEC ONCE THE "PIN" WAS REMOVED FROM THE TENSIONER. THE TENSIONER IS WHAT REALLY KEEPS THE BELT TIGHT. "SETTING THE TENSION" IN REALITY IS JUST GIVING THE TENSIONER ENOUGH TRAVEL TO DO ITS JOB (ONCE YOU TAKE OUT THE PIN) IF THE BELT STRETCHES OR BEARINGS WEAR.

2. I see that you replaced a lot of items with pretty new parts, but you chose to use the old tensioner. What was your reasoning for reusing that part?

I ALREADY REPLACED IT ONCE AT 70 K AND AT $130.00 I'LL TAKE MY CHANCES. THE WATER PUMP WAS FREE (WARRANTEE) AND THE OTHER PARTS WERE RELATIVELY CHEAP. IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY AND WANT PEACE OF MIND IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO REPLACE THIS ITEM AS WELL.

3. Did you really turn the engine through two revs? If so, how did you rotate it? With the crank bolt?

YES, VERY SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY WITH THE CRANK BOLT. ONCE DONE A QUICK COUNTERCLOCKWISE JERK LOOSENS IT BACK UP.
