1993 Dodge D-250 w/ cummins.I need a quick bit of info on the belt tensioner.1. Does it come off when the bolt in the middle is removed?2. I think the assembly is ok and I just need to replace the idler pulley. Is this easier to accomplish by removing the complete assembly.Thanks in advance. :thumbup2:

Ah good. Wasn't sure if it was different or not. I've never taken it off so now we both know :lol:

--- Update to the previous post...

I was wondering about how it lined back up and I'm sure you've already figured it out but I went ahead and made a video of it just in case.

ISX....the man that will stop at nothing to show people how things are done!:lmao2: So what request would it take about tearing something apart on a truck that you "wouldn't " go out in the yard and tear yours apart to show somebody :shrug::lmao:

Thanks again ISX..... :thumbup2:

Yeah I figured lineup out with no problem. But I did just go ahead and replace the whole assembly with a DAYCO one. Once I got mine off and inspected it I found that the tensioner itself also had some wear in the aluminum housing. That is what was causing most of the slight alignment problem that was causing the belt to "jump inward a groove" on the AC compressor pulley.

Problem solved though..... only difference was the new assembly had a 1/2" square hole instead of a 3/8" to move it with.

Thanks again. :thumb1:
