Welcome to Justanswer
So are you removing the tensioner
Not yet. Thinking this may save my serpentine belt in the future. The one on there looks like original equipment from 1993 (178k miles ago).
Had one go out on a Taurus a few years back and caused a lot of problems.
Yes I would replace the tensioner belt and idler pulley to be sure its good.
There are the steps pretty simple process on the matter
When I go to parts store, do I tell them I need one for a '93 F150 V8?
Here is the pic for routing the belt
Yes tell them 93 f150 5.8 liter engine
I've heard there were several versions on this year model. They use the same pulley?
They should give you the proper one the 5.8 only uses the 90MM pulley
The 4.9 has a different option not the 5.8
They will get the right one for you dont worry
Thanks! The old girl has a lot of miles on her, but I think she'll give me a few more.
Parts store suggestion?
Definately! I use napa
They seem to have the right stuff
I used to work at Federal Mogul (mostly dealing with brakes and chassis), but I know NAPA are good folks.
Exactly!! Happy 4th of July Thanks in advance for the accept its greatly appreciated and any tips. Have a great day! Danny
