That's how I always do it. if it works and doesn't mess anything up, no worries.

installed the new idler pulley today. it was a pain, had to hack off about 1/2" and loosen motor mounts. was putting the belt on and realized the spring in the tensioner pulley is shot, so gotta pick up a used one tomorrow.

old plastic pulley vs. the new metal pulley.


the blank end is what i cut off the new one, plus a couple mm off the thread. still threaded on nicely. (pic is old bolt, the new one was installed before this pic.)


oh, and i removed the stupid home depot upper grille. next is to get bolts for the tinted ford emblem and put that on til i work out this trade for the svt grille.




now i'm off to the salvage yard, wish me luck on finding a good tensioner pulley!
