My credo
Coming in second just makes you the first loser!
It's time to replace the tentioners in my engine and I'm looking for Ford tentioners. All I seem to find are knock off with Cloyets coming up the most. Does anyone know where to get the OEM parts online?

Cloyes makes good quality parts, I've used them in both my 4.0s without any issues. They also have a lifetime warranty on OEM replacement parts, not that it does you any good it you blow up your engine.

It doesn't look like rock auto sell them anymore. Probably be best to just buy them directly from the dealer if you want motorcraft. I would trust them from ebay/amazon, wouldn't want to take a chance they could be counterfeit.

I'm running Cloyes right now myself with no issues. As far as the Motorcraft ones, parts are becoming harder to come by for several reasons. A dealer might be your best bet at this point.

My credo
Why should I pay someone else to screw it up when I can screw it up myself for free?
Installed new Cloyes a couple months ago. No problems yet after 3K miles but I still do the pedal-to-the-floor start to prime on cold starts. The Motorcraft tensioners were original at 214K miles but would not prime even submerged in oil; the Cloyes were rock solid with just a few pumps.
