i am wondering if this is the correct sketch for the 2.7... bcause the onlyway i could find to fit perfeclty was to put the bushing in the back of the pulley and washer in front. this is the only way i found to match perfectly ... but this sketch tell me another story lol...

Looks like they all 3 show the same thing: Washer in back, then pulley, then the stepped bushing (that comes new with the pulley), then the nut.

If the belt is not hanging over either edge of the pulley, it shouldn't be a problem. The thickness of whatever is on the backside of the pulley determines where the pulley ends up front-to-back. If you stack it as shown and the belt hangs over an edge, something's wrong in alignment of one pulley or another.

Is it tilted, or is it too far forward or too far back? I'll have to take a look at mine to see if it's perfectly centered or not. But, again, if the edges of the belt aren't off the pulley to one side or the other, it's nothing to worry about. Of course the pulley is not symmetrical anyway - one edge is sharp, the other is rounded - so what would be considered centered?

Nothing you've said so far gives me concern.

That's a lot thicker. You can't be serious that you are putting that on the *front* side of the pulley! If putting the stepped bushing behind the pulley is coming out anywhere close to working, the only thing I can figure is that you have it flipped around backwards and so are not inserting the small end inside the ID of the pulley bearing. That's crazy!

Here are the pictures of my pulley. According to my calibrated eyes, the rear edge of my belt is 3/16" from the edge of the pulley:

Exactly like this:

I have a very hard time believing that your belt is positioned relative to the edges of the pulley as shown in my photos if you don't have the spacer behind the pulley

If the pulley is aligned with the other pulleys, and the belt isn't over the edges of the pulley, and the pulley is free to spin without rubbing something, should be no problem.

I won't say that you owe me, just that these shots were hard to get. I loosened the nut until it was almost off of the bolt so that I could slide the pulley forward and rearward as needed to expose what was on the front side and on the rear side as far as the spacer and the stepped bushing:

First pair: Showing what I have on the front side of the pulley (2nd one is cropped and zoomed to show details more clearly). Answer: Nut and the stepped bushing.

Second pair: Showing what I have on the rear side of the pulley (again, 2nd one is cropped and zoomed to show details more clearly). Answer: The spacer.

What I have is like the sketches you posted on Thursday (and I re-posted the first of those sketches yesterday) showing . . . tadda! . . . nut and stepped bushing on front side, spacer on rear side.

Anything left to discuss on this?

Perhaps someone changed the mounting of the idler pulley bracket (moved it forward) sometime in the past. Since everything appears OK with the spacer and bushing opposite, go with that - just make sure that all the other pulleys are in line with each other.

peva did youlook at the last pictures i post????? everything looks ok ....

i can change the spacer for a smaller spacer so it can align right having the bushing in front and spacer in the back...

What's the harm in having the spacer in front and the bushing in back if it lines up right (though it would be nice to know why yours lines up differently)?
