Accessory Drive Tensioner Test Standards
To document test procedures and set-ups that address known failure modes for Accessory Drive automatic tensioners This SAE Standard does not encompass the pulley or pulley bearing. The sample sizes and acceptance criteria should be determined by agreement between the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and the supplier.
Rationale: Revisions to SAE J2436 improves corrosion and contamination test consistency between test sites, standardizes measurement techniques and unit reporting, and confirms accessory drive tensioner failure modes and test factors.
