Perhaps. Ever seen a defective chain tensioner idler arm? I ordered up new ones when I rebuilt my 930 engine and one of them was defective. Nothing that could be seen with the eye, but you couldn't install the chainwheel shaft without using a mallet to force it home...and once that was done, the chainwheel would not turn (major binding). I have a hard time understanding how a simple part like that could be screwed up, but it happens.

Here's hoping the new one works a charm and Jeff is back on the road.
