I have been looking...

I have been looking for a replacement tensioner pulley but the part has been discontinued...no one can tell me what kind of replacement part fits there now.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to help find that for your Chevy. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

It's a 1996 GMC Sierra 3500 7.4L 454///with A.I.R. pump

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started! Do you need the tensioner and the pulley or just the pulley

this is cheapest one I could find, its high price due to the fact of the rarity of the part
