We meet again....

Thanks for the response larry. Sorry if my Post was a bit confusing. What I am trying to do is replace Just the pulley on the tensioner not the complete assembly. It appears to be damaged and worn and is taking a toll on my new belt. I want to replace it but was trying to find a way to relieve tension without using the tensioner since I fear it is on its last leg. I wouldn't think it would damage the tensioner if I Wedge something on the belt just long enough to change out the little pulley. I can get to it easily and It appears I wont even have to take the fan off again. To make a long thread short, I just wanted to make sure that by temporarily releiving tension at the tensioner I wouldn't be damaging anything or possibly making matters worse on my tensioner. What do ya think? do-able?
