The engine only had 134,xxx miles on it when I took it and rebuilt it for burning oil internally. So I must have decided not to replace the tensioner
In my experience, you'll hear when the bearing in the tensioner pulley goes bad. Usually it'll make itself very known for a long time before it seizes. What's more likely is that the tension wasn't set correctly, or the tensioner bolt was undertorqued and slipped on its adjustment.
