For academic discussion...

- Find an INA tensioner and install it.
- If the belt still "walks", it is the defective belt.
- If the belt stops "walking", it is the defective Chinese tensioner.

My 2 cents

I have a 2002 v70 xc. 187+miles . Last Friday while driving 50,55 mph without warning the water pump seized and threw the belt off...
Back in December of 2016 the idler pully was screaming at me, I wanted to replace that weekend so I Stopped at Volvo dealership and bit the bullet and got both pullys belt and water pump.... 2 years ago... I diver maybe maybe 5k a year rest ofthe time the car is garage kept.
Now looking at a head replacement, ,
I guess my points is doesn't seem to matter much anymore by who or where something is made.... Ship Happen.... its the way of the world nothing built to last anymore..... grrrrrr

Two years on a Volvo water pump? Something went wrong there. Save those old parts.

Im across the State in ALB but drive through frequently. Can give a hand with the assesment and cylinder head job.

Hey Abscate..... How are you....
Dont know if you remember me I had the Boots Problem. That put my in the hospital for 2 days I separated a fusion in my neck... grrrrr
Turned out to be the pipe that comes from the intercooler over the motor to the turbo.
The mounting point that little one of two plastic pos plastic weld 3/4 of it has come apart when it was off you couldn't see it , When i mounted back on the car and it opened up.
What PITA that was.... had me chasing my own butt for days!

Right now im looking for a better Camera to see how deep those marks or gouges are on the Pistons before I go any further. Each Piston got hit I dont see anything sitting on the pistons , no metal no valves just contact marks and some kinds look deeper than others... need a better camera/scope to know for sure...
