Purchased this for a 2006 Taurus with a 3.0L SOHC engine. There is only one idler pulley but part listings show two different parts, which are different diameters. Mine was 90mm, which is about 3-1/2 inches. I believe the other was 76 mm, or about 3 inches in diameter.

Had to modify the dust cover (the big flat washer between the head of the bolt and the bearing)to maintain an OEM function. The bearing spins smoothly, but the whole assembly seems to have excessive side-to-side play. We'll see how long it last.

      Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Idler Pulley:

      The pulley is easy to install and seem to work well. Explorer does not have the Diesel engine noise anymore.. It is not as solid as the original and does not have the caster ring that slides into the bolt to be inserted into the pulley hole, but it seem to work well after one week of medium driving.

      Replaced original idler pulley on my 2003 Ford F150 V6 with this one. Stopped squeaks and looks like original. Perfect fit. Does not come with new hardware. Pulley only. Reused original TORX 50 mounting bolt. Use a good TORX socket so you don't strip the bolt.

      • Q:

        I have a 1997 GMC K1500 SLE Z71 off road 4+4 5.7L and was wondering if it matters to use a smooth idler or a grooved idler and what is the best quality product for the money. Thanks Tim

          A:

          I'm happy to help, Tim! For your 1997 GMC K1500 SLE Z71 4x4 5.7L it will depend on what your vehicle has for an idler pulley currently. If it is grooved it must be replaced with grooved. Smooth must be replaced with smooth. From what I see the grooved pulley tends to be for the trucks without A/C. Based on your serpentine belts routing, either the smooth side of the belt or the grooved side of the belt will come into contact with the idler pulley and that will need to match.

        I have a 1993 Cadillac Deville. Is this the right pulley for the tensioner? The Dayco web page states that this pulley is steel. Some of the reviews state that there is a problem putting the original washer/dust cap on this replacement.
