50Johnbob Yes, that pulley should spin freely when no belt is on.

Should this pulley be free and be able to spin by hand when no belt is on?

Kevbz O'Reily's has it in their computer as the nonadjustable idler, instead of calling the other one a tensioner (the one under the power steering pump) they call it the adjustable one.

just bought both in the past week

TheTJRod It's only one bolt holding it on. I would take it with me to make sure the replacement is the same.

wwch99tj No problem. I just replaced 1 on mine, it may be different on the 6 cylinder (I have a 4 cylinder) but mine had the 2 different sizes to choose from

wwch99tj Yes that's a idler pulley, you will need to measure it there is a 3 and a 3˝ inch size
