I made it out of pieces of flat steel, and thick 1/2" flat washers. It is mig welded together, and I built up the tabs on the end until they were the height I thought was best. I wanted the tab on the left side in the picture to be close to the steel part of the tensioner that the plastic rides on, so some of the pressure from the tensioner would be applied to the metal as well as to the plastic piece. The tensioner only moves out, as the spring clip keeps it from being able to retract when oil pressure is zero. I had asked for gurus opinions on this, as in my mind even if it fell out it couldnt go far and would likely sit at the bottom of the front cover where it meets the oil pan. IT has been running since the end of March, and has about 6000 miles on it. So far so good.
