Default Need help part searching

Looking for a belt tensioner for my tempo <84gl, 2.3, Dealer installed a/c, w/ p/*>.


i know the part number for the ready-aire brand of this is 1917, but autozone doesnt stock it, and prolly cant get it. i am afraid that the part i orded will show up, and it will be just the pulley, and not the entire assembley. anybody able to find one incase autozone fails?

Napa only lists a 2.0 available. http://www.napaonline.com/masterpage...Tensioner+Assy

Parts america lists the 2.3 and it the same part# as the 2.0. http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductD...pe=819&ptset=A
