Thanks to all for responding. The tensioner assembly with guide roller and the lower guide roller are brand new as are the cam and crank seals (120K service). The belt is physically correct but with hash marks that must be for some variant of the V6. I reset the tension and checked all the timing marks per specs and the belt does feel a tad looser now. I will run the car for a while with timing cover off to keep an eye on things. The pics were interesting - I wasn't aware that the upper guide roller moved to the right on later models. What I had noticed is that the lower guide roller has also moved...my car has it directly above the oil pressure control valve port but several of the Saab instructions I have show it lower and to the left of this port. So when they say that the felt pen mark you put on the eccentric of that roller should point to the water pump on my engine that's not the case; my mark points to the 1 o'clock position. (I've followed the instructions quite a few times now and that mark always ends up at 1 o'clock. The mark on the upper roller
points roughly to 10 o'clock like the service manual says.
When I removed the tensioner roller earlier today I saw that some grease has seeped out of the bearing on the back side...from overheating it seems.
Hopefully with the belt a bit looser and stretching somewhat as it wears in
everything will be ok. Thanks again, Kirk
