Default Anyone using Beck/Arnley timing belt rollers

On my 960 the timing belt idler roller is making some noise on the 1st start up of the day. A squealing noise for a few miles. I was unable to find the stock INA bearing at the normal sites. In a hurry to get parts ordered before the bearing locks up or throws a belt I ordered a new timing belt and the Beck/Arnley idler roller. There were 3 or 4 choices at Rock Auto and this is the one I chose. Belt already here and bearing will show up this week sometime.

Thanks Dave

I made a good choice. The bearing came yesterday and has INA printed on the face. Made in Slovakia. INA is the OEM on the 960 tensioner and idler rollers. Feel a whole lot better using it now.

If any 960 owners wanting the correct INA go to rock auto and order the Beck/Arnley bearing.$20 and they are on closeout. If I had been able to find this bearing on the normal import sites I believe they're normally about $70.
