Re: 1979 pontiac trans am 400 4 speed with air cond.
I may have a picture for that, I will check in the morning and reply if I have it. If you want the ball stud (pivot ball) for the cross shaft you can get it at NPD (National Parts Depot). http://www.npdlink.com/
For the one on the frame side, it part no C-4016-1C $10.45 phone 1-800-235-3445. They have different warehouses in California, Michigan, North Carolina and Florida, so tell them where you are and they'll ship it from the closest. Other options would be Ames Performance (www.amesperf.com) and Classic Industries (www.classicindustries.com), all good places.

It sounds like you are missing the idler pully. I need to know what size motor you have to get you the diagram. If this car is a v belt style you manually set tension. If this is serpentine belt style sound like your missing the tensioner too.
Hey Liv. You have to place a floor jack under the engine oil pan and support the engine. Now you have to remove the engine mount on the passenger end of the engine. you will need a 18mm wrench and some inverted torx bit sockets as the lower stud has to be removed to allow the mount to be removed. The two 18mm bolts will be really tight and should be tightened so when reinstalled. Remove the long bolt that goes thru the mount horizontally also. now you can remove the belt with the 18mm wrench on the tensioner. study the belt routing and remove it. install the new belt and reinstall the mount in reverse order. good luck and don't get hurt loosening the bolts. use gloves if you can.
