100K would be pushing it. Especially with the harsh winters y'all have up there.
Cracks and squeaks.

Thanks,

Piece of cake, Johnny. You've already got it figured out. Now all you need to do is get a breaker bar with a 15mm socket (I think that's what size the bolt on the tensioner is) on it and apply some opposite pressure. Shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes.
