I saw the same thread. The guy had issues with his alignment/rear wheel wobble, he found the tensioner not tightened down when he was oiling the belt. I thought to myself "that doesn't sound right at all."

Way back in the day there was a product called belt dressing. You could spray it on your cars v-belts to quiet them. I can remember my dad using it on the car and the big squirrel cage fan on the A/C for the house. It shouldn't be needed on the R* but it isn't a complete myth either. I'm sure a lot of the older guys here remember it as well.
