Anyone happen to know the 2 sizes of O rings on these elbows? The 3 reds and single black.

I will be taking mine out soon and I want to have O rings on hand just in case.

Thank you!

I can give you the AC Delco part number for the O rings that fit onto the quick connect fittings for the heater hoses, ACD 24502375. I used the metal HELP elbow and it came with a silicone O ring that I slipped into the LIM.

My alternator was squeaking too so I replaced that at the same time as the tensioner. Silence!

Old thread, I know, but others may benefit. Total time spent on the project 2 1/2 hours from seat out to back seat replaced.

Did we ever find out what this gauge means?  I couldn't find anything about it in the FSM.  The FSM does have instructions for testing belt tension, which requires a special tool, so I'm thinking this gauge does NOT indicate whether the tensioner is holding the correct tension or not.  The FSM says something about it indicating whether the length of the belt is within a usable range. Maybe that's the answer but it'd be nice to now what the notches are meant to indicate. It would seem like you'd only need two to define the range of acceptable sizes.
