Right, chances are mine's already been "converted" so I think I'm just gonna grab a new one in this style and be done with it.
I think the kit is really just different bolts + the new style hydraulic tensioner body. Which after the first time, you only need to buy the actual hydraulic piece to fix a broken tensioner. Looks like now I have to pull this very piece off the tensioner that just got pulled off the car (which is leaking so it's obviously done)... I don't know if I'll be able to undo that bolt without putting the body/brace back on the car grrrr.
