What would make all 4 of my Metco Idler bearings go bad at once? Checked belt it's not to tight, I am running a 4lb lower and it does seem to look like it is vibrating alittle when you shine a light on it so I pulled it off and couldn't find anything wrong with it. Noticed the rubber on the balancer looked fine it's not pushing out so im at a stop until I can think of something else to check? I also had to change the snout at Mustang Week this year , the bearings in it went bad as well ..... and here's the funny part car only has 10,000 on it. I know something is going on just can pin point it. Anyone had this issue before? Thanks

Sounds odd for sure. Could the stock tensioner be able to put too much pressure on any of the bearings at all?
