Belt Tension Gauge
Great tool but expensive and large
The sad thing was that this was a shop that prided itself on being an expert in my model car.
I guess they use the "its good enough" approach to precision. Especially good for cars that don’t have auto-tensioning systems.
Helps you keep squealing belts away and also will stop you from over-tensioning and possibly damaging expensive parts!
The only drawback is that its quite large and is hard to fit in tight spaces if you have a cramped engine space.
