Hi. I'm trying to replace the belt and having trouble finding the notch on the tensioner to attach a break out wrench or some other tool to release tension. The vehicle is a 1996 GMC Suburban K2500 7.4 liter Vortex engine with AC and approximately 140K miles. These are the best pictures I could manage given the tight clearance. Here, the tensioner can be seen below the alternator. Here are similar parts I found online, but not sure if they're the same exact part. If anyone has worked on one of these, I'd appreciate some suggestions.
I am replacing my belt tensioner. I can not find a place where it is bolted in. I thought that it was right in the middle of the actual tensioner but it's not. It look like there is some very large screw? Which nothing else I read or watched mentioned
Hello, my name is Kyle. I am new to GM-Trucks.com and am just starting to really get into do it yourself projects. I will be taking my 1987 GMC S15 pickup down to florida next week for the Daytona 500 from New Jersey. But first I need to replace the belt tensioner. I understand the part of taking it off and putting the new one on but in videos I keep watching them keep mentioning something about the torque when I tighten the new tensioner. When tightening it I don't just tighten it with a socket? I need a torque wrench? Any help or tips you guys or girls can provide me with for this project would be greatly apprciated. Thanks!!!
