Just did the 300TE tonight. I wish it was only 50 minutes!

I did replace the visco clutch (old one not working well and VERY oily) and the tensioner. The old tensioner was cracked pretty badly.

Only trouble I had was loosing one PS pulley bolt (will look tomorrow when it's light) and the shock pushed the tensioner so far down I thought I'd done something wrong since I couldn't get the belt back on.

Cured the noise and the leak. Pure pain getting that stinking engine full of water! Nearly overheated it before I got it full.

Nice way to spend 6 hours on a Monday.
