I was taught a long time ago ---If it aint broke don't fix it...
In fact the tensioner was replaced just a little over a year ago. If I can prolong the life of this thing a year I would like to do just that. If it breaks during this install I will replace it. Otherwise I'm going to try to be as careful as possible and change just the pulley.
Also, In my previous post when I say it appears to be damaged and worn I am speaking of the pulley not the tensioner.

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here." Patrick Henry 1776
