Default looking @ pullys

I'm looking into putting a smaller pully on. I've looked over the link at pullyboys but it'* hard to know where to start. I'm thinking i want a pully around 2" but i don't know if i'm going to need a new serpentine belt after that to accomidate the smaller sized pulley. Help please!

I wouldn't go smaller than 2.2" and get an oversized idler pulley from ZZP instead of a different belt. You'll get more wrap and won't have to remember a different size belt if you ever need a new one.

This tensioner pulley is larger, and takes up slack. This pulley goes below and to the left of the SC pulley. It'* cheaper than a new belt, also.

OK, so do i need to buy a smaller pulley along with that tensioner? Does that tensioner go over the smaller pulley or beside it? VERY CONFUSED!

You'll need a SC and a tensioner pulley. You know whicho one is the SC pulley. The tensioner pulley you need to replace is the one that is on the left.

Now that we got that figured out, you need to edit out the jibberish from you bold tags in your sig. Sometimes those pop up from nowhere, through no fault of your own.
