You sir are SEMI correct, and I am SEMI wrong. LOL. It depends on the application of the 3800. The assembly that he is removing on some models, the elbow is built into the tensioner itself. The one in the video, yes, you would need the second elbow that comes in the kit. With my application, I do not need the second elbow. I will post a picture of a non-plastic elbow later this morning.

But thank you for pointing that out to me nameless member!

Well, my 95 and my 97 Bonneville both only came with 1 plastic coolant elbow. That is why I said what I said in the beginning.
