Glad you got it in, but No straps needed at all.

I have been doing it this way for years with air tools.

I take and put the two front mounting bolts in, then I loosen
The jam nuts on the track adjuster all the way to the head of
the adjustment bolt.

Now I take a air ratchet and equally tightened each adjustment bolt.

As the track gets tighter it pulls the upper idler wheels down
and forward and pushes them right into place


If it looks stock..... It must be ??????
