I did the timing belt job ... 4 months later blew an exhaust valve. As part of the repair the mechanic replaced the belt and tensioner.
Since the belt only had about 5K mi on it, I figured maybe someone would want it instead of paying full price for a new OEM belt.
The Timing Belt Adjuster Bolt was just an extra part, bought 2 in case one ended up getting bent like the original one did.
The Tensioner I replaced with an OEM one 2 weeks after the head job was done.. I had to go back in to try and fix that rubbing noise that I thought may have been because of the aftermarket tensioner...but it turned out to be a balancer belt tension adjustment only. Since the piece was only installed for 2 weeks..figured someone might want to save a few$$
