never seen the setup- but still got a question: if the tensioner is actually moving that far from the belt slapping around, wouldnt adding more belt contact pull even harder on the tensioner due to increased traction? just wondering if a tensioner travel limiter might be an option- to still allow the belt to slip say when you powershift into second and the RPM drops so suddenly the blower acts as a flywheel- better to slip the belt than get belt pull so hard the crank or blower snout fails...just seems a 'stop' could allow slipping with just slightly loose fit instead of a few inches if the tensioner really tries to deflect hard...just curious...
