    I think that is the same as your order. I have not compared the minutiae of the numbers, but at a glance I think they are the same?
    That looks about right.

    What components are we missing? According to the phone rep from Grizzly, 130 A&B and 131 A&B are included in P055033A Blade Adj Screw Assembly 7".

    The ones he said were included, were not on mine. Maybe my screw assembly was missing parts? I had to order them separately. I have also somehow misplaced them since I received my second order.

    You were dead on right, stan was WRONG, well maybe not when he posted, and in all fairness, the grizzly rep I talked to goofed too... What a PITA...

    Oh well, now to Ace Hardware to grab the misc fasteners...

    I was REALLY hoping I was wrong so they would send me the parts to replace the ones I ordered the second time and that disappeared into the wormhole. I have looked everywhere. Looks like I am going to have to re-re-order them!

    I have double and triple checked the part #s against the Grizzly G0555 parts list. The previously mentioned part number change that Stan listed on the second page of this thread is currently wrong information. But that is a very old post too... Current correct information is as follows...

    33 P0555033A 1 Blade Adj. Screw Assy 7"
    130A PSS05M 1 Setscrew M5-.8x10 (Get this from local hardware store if possible. I could not find these locally.)
    130B PSS07M 1 Setscrew M5-.8x5 (Get this from local hardware store if possible. I could not find these locally.)
    131A P0555131A 1 Fixed Spacer A.
    131B P0555131B 1 Fixed Spacer B.
    133 P0555133 1 Lever Rod
    135 P0555135 1 Bushing
    137 P0555137 1 Bracket
    140 P0555140 2 Support Plate
    141 P0555141 1 Fixed Base

    Now the rest of this stuff SHOULD be findable at your local hardware store for a LOT less money than Grizzly sells it.
    If you are wanting to go with the Metric to be 100% up to speed with Grizzly, the parts are...
    132 PW04M 1 Flat Washer 10mm
    134, PW01M 6 Flat Washer 8MM
    136, PSB82M 1 Button Cap Screw M8-1.25x20
    138, PB15M 2 Hex Bolt M8-1.25x40
    139, P0555139 2 Nylon Nut M8-1.25
    142, PLW04M 2 Lock Washer 8MM
    143, PB09M 1 Hex Bolt M8-1.25x20

    Following the original instructions, I am going with 5/16" SAE mostly because I have the SAE tap & die set from way back when... Those components are...
    2 @ 5/16-18 bolts 1 1/2"
    2 @ 5/15-18 bolts 3/4"
    1 @ 5/16-18 button cap screw 3/4"
    7 @ 5/16 flat washers
    2 @ 5/16 lock washers
    2 @ 5/16-18 nylon locking nuts

    FWIW, I use a LOT of 5/16" hardware, and intend on picking mine up in full box quantities at Ace Hardware. My local Ace gives full box discounts...

    New info on this mod?

    The original link is dead. I would love to add the grizzly blade tensioner to my saw.

    I would HIGHLY recommend you read the text of this thread, then read the article I wrote on the subject HERE, and follow that up with reading my blog series (7 parts) on Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight bansaw that I put up on Lumberjocks a while back... It can be found HERE.

    IF after all that, you still have questions, send me a private message with your email address and I will answer anything I can for you...

    This is a very worth while modification, and it is very easy to do, but I do not recommend it for the mechanically squeamish as it DOES involve drilling into the frame of the saw... Any mistakes / breaking or messing up expensive parts is your responsibility...

    Thank you -exactly what I was looking for!

    The links you provided are what I need to finish the mod. So far I have converted over to one speed and a new single belt - huge improvement! The saw came with a new 1HP motor and now I will be beefing up the wimpy motor mount. New graphite guide blocks are on the way along with a new fence and tires and blade from Carter. I will be ordering the Grizzly parts in the AM and will post pics as I do the mods. If I do the riser block I will be swapping the motor from my table saw over to the band-saw and adding a 2 or 3 Hp motor to the table-saw and moving the band-saw motor over to my underpowered drill press.

    I had originally planned on the motor upgrade, but haven't really needed to. I just run the saw on the fastest speed and it just hums along nicely... Then again, I am patient...
