OK.I see.It has been a while since I have done a ford.Most take a 3/8 ratchet or a 1/2 ratchet to fit into the square hole.We also use a box end wrench on the pulley bolt as long as you have to rotate the tensioner downward.I found the pic.No special tool just a 3/8 or 1/2 ratchet.You may have to put a pipe on the handle to give you a little leverage.
