After attempting to get the part from my FLAPS (friendly local auto
part store), both the local napa and the car quest told me it was a
Ford-Only item, I went to the Local ford dealer- Cowboy Motors and
found them ery helpful and not to terribly out of line insofar as the
cost of the idler pullry was concerned- $37.95.
I didn't hae a chilton's manual, so I followed the belt routing diagram
in the interior of the hood, folloew the diagram on how to use a 3/8
drive to loosen the belt tensioner, and "walla"
he belt was on- I only finger tightened the idler pulley, then used a
15mm open end wrench to tighten the pulley into the place it was
supposed to go....
40 minutes from start to finish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (including copious
think time included in this figure)
Thanks for the help!!!!!
