|Just as a follow up:
I took the belt tension gauge to the Nationals in Springfield in the hopes of getting a few readings from JH's, and managed to do so.
2 cars were running at 80 lbs, 1 at 90 lbs, 1 at 95lbs, mine at 110 lbs and a GT at 130 lbs (w/whine).
We adjusted the GT down to 95 - 97 lbs, ( no whine )
Plus we also set a JH to 95 lbs that we attempted to change the timing belt on, but crank bolt would'nt undo.
And when I got home I reset mine to 95 lbs. and all seem's well.
This is not a scientific study but hey, just some info. all the readings were taken on a cold engine just above the water pump / thermostat housing area.
If anyone is having a meet or show and would like to borrow this tool to check a few cars just let me know, all I ask is that it be returned in the condition you recieved it.
