Christian is correct.
When installing a Carrera tensioner update kit on an earlier engine, it is always wise to replace the idler arms with wide Carrera style replacements.
The ones pictured are early arms with spacers.
Galling where the arms contact the pin is the major cause of tensioner failure, even with Carrera tensioners.
Yes, Carrera tensioners fail too!! We have a box full of them.
