The tensioner has a bearing but the stamped idler pulley does not. They, along with the stamped cam gear, were prone to fatigue and fracture. I'd check for a split gear which would easily cause a thrown belt.

The "broken" belts I've seen has stripped teeth, but remained in place.

M20 is hateful and committed suicide.

Time for a proper twincam

Also, Simon, if you have all these pics and the part was new out the box, you can contact the manufacturer and they might compensate you for the damage
