Perhaps there is a point being missed here; Did the extractor have tension before? If it did, and it is now less-tensioned, then adjust/replace it.
If it never had any more tension before than it has now, there is no problem.
When I tested the 30 guns for my latest book, I recorded the extractor tension of the guns. they ranged from an average of 42 ounces to zero. That's right, no recorded tension, and the guns (there were two of them as I recall) worked fine. There were several more with an average tension (Weigand gauge) under ten ounces.
If it is changing, it is going to fail. If it isn't changing, then there is no problem. As for your squeaking belts, diet and exercise.
