To Karah Saurus
The tensioner pulley is the first pulley to the right of the power steering pump.
If stand on the passenger side of the car facing the pulleys the power steering pump is the all the way to your left (largest pulley on the car) and tensioner pulley is the first small pulley to the right.

The pulley piece should look something like this:

it can be almost anywhere on the belt side of the front of the engine. if you have a long belt or many belts then there can also be more than one idler pulley (tensioner pulley)

The tensioner pully is the only adjustable pully you will have. Look for the "pulley" with a small arm with another belt router on the end. Should look like this " 0--0" Two circles with an arm connecting them. If you see none than some cars have a alternator adjustment, which means the alternator slides and bolts down to keep the belt tight. Hope this helps a little. Thanks a bunch.

Need the spec on installing a tension pully for a 2003 ford taurus


Not sure what spec your looking for. I replaced the tensioner pully on my F-150 302 last year though. And basically the bolt is left hand thread and turning the bolt gives the slack in belt needed to take belt off, and put back on. Hope this helps.

Ef ford falcon 1994 tork specification for crank shaft pully nut


As it is difficult to torque set the nut on an assembled engine beacuse you cannot hold the crakshaft, normally if you use a good quality 1/2'' drive torque gun it will be sufficient

1999 ford ranger timing marks 2.5


One is on the crank shaft pully (for TDC). It is a line, scribed on the pully, that alligns to a pointer on the plastic timing belt cover. The second is on the cam shaft pully. It can be accessed by removing the rubber inspection plug on the timing belt cover. The third is on the auxillary shaft (oil pump) and is also accessed through an inspection plug on the timing belt cover.

On the cam and oil pump pullies, the diamond aligns to the diamond and the triangle aligns to the triangle (the pullies have both). These should be perfectly aligned when the crankshaft pully line is at 0 deg TDC. If you can't see the marks through the inspection port while the crank is at 0 TDC, you are 180 degrees out - turn the crank one more time.

How to set timing marks when changing the timing belt 1995 kia sportage 2.0liter


There is a DOHC or SOHC (double or Single overhead cam engone. Both are Similar. Both have a notch on back side of crank pully that aligns with a tab on engine just above crank pully looks like a triangle with the tip near crank pully is rounded off. SOHC engines have an arrow on cam pully that aligns with a point at top of timing belt rear housing. about straight up at top of it. DOHC have an I and an E on the cam pullys I for INTAKE and E for EXHAUST. the I and E match up at same type points on top of rear Timing belt housing. When installing belt make sure you do not move pullys. put belt on starting with cam shaft (s) then down to crank on tension side which looking at motor will be the right side or Clockwise direction keeping it tight no, or EXTREEMLY little slack. then back up around tensioner. Tensioner should be the last pully to go around. Once on make sure timing marks still lline up.Adjust tensioner and. rotate engine BY HAND 4 times and re check marks.

Belt inst


For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.
