Loud Tensioner Pulley
Ever since I pulled the belt off to port the LIM, the tensioner pulley has been making noises like the bearings might be going out. I free spun it with the belt off, and it spun freely, but it made the noise. And the spring was noisy too until I pushed it up and down a few times.
Could I spray some white lithium grease in there to quiet it up, or do you think I need to get a new tensioner pulley? It'* just annoying when you start it up in the morning and when you're idling.
