That is not the proper tensioner for a TIII, it's for the sohc 2.2/2.5 engines.

What you need is one like this. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000I198J0/nextag-auto-20/ref=nosim

yeah i know that tool was needed but i thought by using the wieght tool it would tension the belt bang on in one shot rather then const adjusting the tension using that gauge.

Thanks for answering my first question Turbodave:)
