Is there any way that the tensioner could be made to use 608's instead of 624's?

yes maybe it's possibile...
but there isn't much space between the x-end and the frame... so I think the bolt head/nut will going to hit the frame :\
so I don't know if you could use it :\

I have a spacer to reduce the inner hole of the 608 bearing to 4mm so the bolt size isn't a problem at all. I would just need the tensioner piece to have a little more space in the middle to fit it's size. A 624 is 13mm round and 5mm wide. The 608 is 22mm round and 7mm wide. Would this work?

The whole Issue I have is that I have a ton of 608's laying around but I have no 624's and would have to wait quite a long time for them to ship.
