Unlike wavemaker the bolt-holes did line up for me, however, the endspring sticks out in the wrong place, making it impossible to put the power steering pump back on without changing the bend in the metal hose that connects to the pump from underneath.

Have fun, and be careful.

    Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

    The belt came off. Had it towed home. The belt looked fine, but it wasn't on the water pump pulley all the way. The tensioner felt smooth. I thought the water pump shaft had 'walked in', so I replaced the water pump. Didn't fix it. Well, the crank pulley was aiming the belt, and it wasn't aimed right, Advance stocked it so it must be a fast moving part, so I replaced it. Didn't fix it. Then I noticed the tensioner bolt head was leaning back a little. Bingo. Piece of do-do. Sometimes I's think too much. Take the pulley off for easier installation.
