Default Need help Identifying this tensioner

Hi,

I was originally told I needed 38194 gates but it was not the correct one.

I have the original first gen bracket, the one with only two pulleys. The tensioner is at the bottom. I have a picture of it if anyone can help.

Thats a stock tensioner. I have the same bracket on a customers car, you can replace it with any stock ls1 version or get the HD version of the HD trucks. There basically all the same.

Thanks Roger. That is exactly what we did, with the HD version and swapped the pulley.

All good now.

On the old bracket it is a 38194 tensioner but you must remove the ribbed pulley and use a smooth one for anyone who had the same issue.
