Why is my 1992 eagle talon stripping the timing belt even after new tensioner and fresh rebuild?

Sounds like misalignment if it is stripping the belt. Check the

alignment of the pullies and sprockets and make sure they are all

turning properly, that they are not warped and there are no foreign

material in the grooves. I had a similar problem with the tensioner

throwing belts (serpentine) on my 92. It could just be a bad

tensioner as well. If you took it somewhere to get repaired, I

would notify them of the issue as most repair work is covered for a

certain amount of time. If you did the job yourself, make sure it

was all torqued to specifications and recheck your reassembly as

well as the above suggestions. Good luck!
