Sir,
If you look at the tensioner pulley, there is a stud on which the pulley rides, and then a large washer and a nut (which holds it on). The nut must be loosened just a bit (not so loose as to allow alot of play in the mounting) but just loose enough to allow movement - then you can turn the adjustment bolt Clockwise(CW) tighten - or Counter-CW to loosen - but leave it just a bit shy of tight, then as you tighten the nut, the pulley will straighten and tighten a bit more. I hope this is what you are referring to. Hope it helps! DD

How do I reinstall the alternator belt on a 91 plymouth acclaim? I dont see a tensioner and cant get the belt back on once it is bolted in place


these have a serpentine belt and the tensioner is below the alternator and requires a special tool to move it. you can try using a wrench that will fit on the belt tensioner but you won`t have much room to move it. look under the hood around the upper rad support for a decal it may still be there. if it is it shows the belt routing and were the tensioner is.

The tensioner will have a mounting bolt in the center. Put a wrench (box end) on the bolt to pivot the tensioner. Note - make sure you are moving the tensioner and not trying to move an idler pulley

I cant get the old radiator fan off cuz the pully spins


Try tightining the fan belt. if that doesnt work try to jam a screw driver behind the pully without ruining it while looseing the pully. remember bolts comming off turn counter clockwise.

Have you tried to start it yet?That may be all you need to do to get the tensioner to re-activate and get the proper tightness.Be quick though.Only a brief start,then check it to see if it is any better.
