Bus Belt Tensioner

The new Gates DriveAlign™ Heavy-Duty Bus Belt Tensioner (#38655) significantly outlasts other tensioners in the punishing environment of the bus engine compartment. This purpose-built tensioner utilizes all the patented features that make DriveAlign™  tensioners the best in the market today. Features include a longer swing arm, heavy-duty components and a large-diameter double groove pulley to accommodate Powerband™ belts. In real-world testing it delivered up to three times the service life of the OEM version. Smoother operation and superior damping increases belt life, reducing downtime and extending maintenance intervals. The exclusive, patented shoe damper absorbs shock loads better than any other tensioner brand – including OEM – and protects A/C compressor and generator bearings from shock loads and excess heat.

Includes an adapter plate that provides a wide range of positioning options and enables the tensioner to be installed on most engines, even those with retrofit brackets
