Hi guys,

I got some Pz III metal Track Tensioners this past weekend form Curtis, and i was just installing them now, and it looks like the screws holding my idler wheels on is a totally different (and much larger) screw from what the track tensioners are meant for.  so the holes in my idler wheels  are actually larger then the heads of the screws that come with the tensioner, and correspondingly the whole in hte tensioner wheel mount is smaller then the screw i have that fits the idler wheel.

I don't have any metalworking stuff, and i don't have a great deal of resources. plus being new to the hobby i also don't have a lot of spare parts kicking around.

any ideas?

I have my Panzer III in my car and I'll take a look at it for you, but off the top of my head I believe it was built for the metal idler wheels. I'll let you know asap.

Steve
The difference is HL is tank you have and Taigen is tensioners you got from me. Any chance you can take a pic and mail it to me please? If we are talking about the same screw which is the one the idler wheel sits on it is not a big deal. I had the same issue and just drilled a new hole, slid a bearing into it and used nuts on the inside of the tank. I have a set of bearings I used as well, they are from a traxas car, paid like 2.99 for a pair but you need 2 in each side. 
Anyway snap a pic and mail it to me.
