92 sse supercharged,
The front edge of the sc,ac,wp belt was frayed. Today the belt broke. I replaced the belt and the tensioner pulley (from plastic to metal). On closer inspection it looks like the tensioner pulley is not parallel with the other pulleys. Do you agree this is my root problem? Here are some pics:
I can get a tensioner used for $15. New is about $56 with shipping from gmpd. Money is very tight. Would I be wasting my time and money buying used? Also, I read something about possible compatibility with a tensioner from a non sc 3800. I can likely get a tensioner more cheaply and with a swap guarantee local if I can use a tensioner from a non sc engine. The only place I can get parts from a sc engine is an hour away, returning to swap would be costly.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
