Please..put down the potato gun and stop shooting spuds from the hip.
Two seconds on Advance'* website shows 3 tensioner assemblies available. Been available almost as long as tensioner have been on cars. It'* called replacement parts buddy.
Now..back to the topic, you can replace only a pulley or the whole assembly. Ensure if you buy an assembly that it comes with a pulley.
Speaking from personal experience, I shoulda checked on the tensioner.
When I needed a tensioner for the 93 I was NOT able to get one at SCHUCKS or Autozone. The eversohelpful guy behind the counter told me they do not sell belt tensioners period. Obviously he was not informed correctly and I just passed on the misinformation.
I just did some homework and it looks like Advance/Shucks/Checker is carrying every tensioner now.
