I am replacing the timing belt componants on a DOHC vin code W vehicle

The dealer (Vista Isuzu Woodland Hills Ca) tells me my VIN# takes the tensioner roller #8971160020 which has an S embossed into the metal.

The one that I took off (the original) has a W embossed into it. This would be a #8971160010.

They look the same to me and I am really confused about what to do. I have the 0020. Should I return it and get a 0010? They look the same.

What if anything is significant about this S vs W or are they interchangeble?

Not sure about the letters, but I know there was a transition point when they changed the tensioner cam and roller design...the newer design has a roller tip on the cam IIRC.

JLEMOND would know... :lol:
