ALRIGHT, so I bought a new car, 95 mustang v6 with a 3.8 L and it’s come time to replace my tensioner. The problem is the bolt is so rounded out that it essentially has to be drilled out so I can’t reuse it, Ford no longer makes or sells that specific bolt anymore apparently. Is there anything I could use that in theory would work to keep my tensioner on ?? I love this car, but I don’t like the fact that I can just pop open the hood and easily remove my belts because there is no spring in the tensioner thanks y’all

Um... Yeah. It's just a bolt. Go to a hardware store and buy a grade 8 bolt of the same size.

If you need help determining the size, I'm sure someone around here has one lying around that they can measure or we have it written down in a thread someplace.
