hope you got guns for arms. that tensioner is tough to swing up. im pretty sure its an 11/16" bolt. a little advice: dont start your wrench or ratchet from the 6 o'clock position and rotate the tensioner. if you do, the tensioner will swing back past where it was with the belt on and your wrench or ratchet will get pinned up against the k-member, and will be tough to remove from the tensioner bolt. start your wrench/ratchet from around the 4 o'clock position.

Mike, you must have a strong spring in your tensioner. I can move it, and my 16 year old daugher can do it, too.
