Obviously, you bought your Gremlin because you understood you would be getting power and American style both rolled up into one vehicle. Your American Motors dealership isn't the only place to find genuine or original equipment quality replacement parts for your Gremlin. The vehicle in your driveway is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to all the vehicles currently being driven today. American Motors automobile owners have come to expect a certain level of dependability when driving their Gremlin around town.
Getting reliable performance out of your American Motors Gremlin means you need precise engine timing. The timing belt tensioner ensures that the timing belt maintains a firm grip on the crank and cam pulleys so that it won't fly off suddenly or skip any teeth. Your American Motors Gremlin timing belt tensioner appears similar to other belt idlers and tensioners on your engine, attached to the engine block under the timing cover, and it includes some mechanism (sprung or hydraulic) that applies pressure in direct opposition to the belt in order to keep it tight.
Don't let a broken Timing Belt Tensioner bring about the demise of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't gamble with its condition by installing anything but the best repair parts.
