The tension pulley is the one that is not driving anything, and has a large spring assemble attached. At the centre on the (cllosed) side there should be a 1/2" square hole that will receive your torsion bar. Pull the pulley assembly so that the belt is released,and remove the bely.

Change moter alt belt keeps breaking


Hi the altenator belt? if it keeps snapping then your altenator is rather starting to seize up or its not fitted correctly, normally if its squeking its to loose.

Spin the altenator by hand and see what it sounds like, if its hard to turn or noisey that the fault.

hope this helps.

Battery charges when idling but not at speed. 81 datsun


This sounds like the altenator belt is loose. When the altenator is under a load the magnetic field causes the altenator to require more fource to rotate. At higher engine rpms the belt can be slipping on the altenator pulley. There is one other possibility I can think of and that would be that the voltage regulator is faulty and and causing an overvoltage at higher engine speeds and therfore opening up the field circuit to prevent the altenator from over charging the battery this is a safety function of the regulator. I would check the belt first.

Tighten altenator belt, need help


Your car has a spring loaded belt tensioner. If the belt is loose it is either routed wrong or the tensioner is bad.
