I hope you know which way to turn the bolt and the 12 point socket wrench deal because I have the same problem? Which way do I turn the bolt on the block?

Which bolt are you trying to turn?

The SC tensioner pulley itself is a reverse threaded bolt. All other idlers etc are regular thread.

Does reverse thread mean turn clockwise to loosen bolt? This particular belt tensioner is located near supercharger and makes wracket and I'm trying to get this ride saftied. How much pressure will I place on torque wrench to tighten new pulley to the belt tensioner?
