Question about 1993 Ford F250

1993 Ford F250 4 x 4 - Tensioner jumps of belt

We had a new motor and rebuilt transmission put into the truck 2 years ago. IN the last 6 months the tensioner pully the the serpentine belt goes around has been jumping back and making the belt come off. We have had the tensioner replaced twice and when the truck runs at an idle speed it does fine. But if you rev the engine it knocks the belt off again and we have to replace it. We really need to sell this truck and other than this one problem it is in good shape. Can you help me?

It sound like the tensioner needs a shim or one taken out. The pulley is not aligned up with the tensioner. so check to see if you need a shim or need to remove a shim.
I hope this helps.

I have what sounds like a squeaky bearing sound at any speed. Varies with RPM. Looking for likely culprits.


you're on the right track, removing the serpentine belt and manually rotating/ spinning the pulleys listening for a dragging, or grinding. If its very bad you may even see a outward movement. hope this helps!

How to change serpentine belt on 1993 Olds Cutlass Ciera V6 motor


Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagrams that you will need for your specific engine size and options (AC/No AC...etc).

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating it\moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

I need to replace the pulley that puts tension on the belt of a 93 ford f 150 with a 351 engine


Hi:
The basic process to change that pulley is to first loosen and remove the serpentine belt. Make a diagram on paper of the belt path, if there isn't one under the hood on a decal.This is done by putting either a wrench or ratchet on the tensioner, and rotating it away from the direction that it applies pressure to the belt. There is either a square hole to put a ratchet in, or a hex head to attach a wrench. Once you get the belt slipped back, examine the belt to see if it needs replaced. The tensioner assembly is held to the engine with a couple bolts, and can now be removed and replaced. Reinstall the new or old belt, and the last step is to rotate the new tensioner back and slip the last section of belt under it.
