READ BELOW IF YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE TENSIONER PULLEY!!!!


I just swapped out 2 upper pulleys and tensioner pulley and the lower pulley. Everything went on just fine EXCEPT the tensioner pulley is different than the other idler pulleys. The hole is larger on the stock one. the way it mounts is different also. the plate it sits on has a built in spacer. So when you install the aftermarket one there is play in the pulley front to back. The way i fixed this is i installed the aftermarket spacer on the rear of the new pulley and re-used the washer that was on the stock pulley on the front of the new pulley. This is the only way i got it to not have play in the pulley front to back. I also replaced my belt as i did all these. I dont know if there is an aftermarket pulley that is made specifically to replace the tensioner pulley but my way seems to be working. Only put a few miles on it so far but no issues.

Cost for 4 pulleys and belt from NAPA was $195 after tax.. saved a cpl hundred bucks by doing it myself and not buying oem parts.

There seems to be some problem getting the tensioner pulley to work as per described above.
Niceguysanti just got done installing these and ran into this problem.

SO HOLD UP ON ORDERING AN EXTRA 36173 PULLEY TO BE USE AS THE BELT TENSIONER PULLEY.

Anyone has a solution?

Re: THANK YOU ROCKAUTO Idler Pulley Problem Solved on the CHEAP

the tensioner pulley is the only one that the engine block has a"post" for. meaning -the pulley slips over the post. It would work like this-

engine block with cast post, pulley slips over post, spacer fits on the outside of pulley through the center hole (bearing) , then bolt to hold everything to the block.

what happens is that the post on the block and the spacer that comes with the pulley leave the pulley with about 3/8 inch play (in and out) all the other pulleys as well as the stock pulley do not have this play. If you put the spacer on the back as stated then the pulley sticks out way too much from the block as the spacer sits outside of the post on the block. ??

I'm thinking of grinding the spacer down on the side that slips inside the pulley. look at Singhas picture marked rear 36173 the spacer looks to be about 1 inch high. making it about 1/2 " (have to measure on engine) would probably solve the problem but I would hate to have an engine blow up due to a slipped or cut belt... so I am waiting to see if anyone can clarify this...
