the tensioner pulley is fine. as long as its not grinding or anything. but what im picturin is the "fresh pulley feel".

but i dont think the towel is a good idea. semi trucks do that for their diesels. gas engines are different.

Is there any up or down pulley rock on the Water Pump pulley? almost sounds like the bearings may be starting to show signs of wear.. When you turn it bu hand do you feel any roughness or binding at all?

I think you can buy a 200 degree switch from accel to turn on the fans automatically at 200. I have only used it on tpi engines, but it works good and is fairly inexpensive. If you cant find it at accel I know of a company that sells them. they just might work on your car.

No pulley rock, it just steps like im spinning an electric motor. The WP on my 93 doesnt step like that. I've been trying to figure out in the last several months why I hear a 'wooing' noise accompanied by vibration I can feel through the pedals every time I turn on the A/C, and I think I finally have my suspect.
