Thanks...how many bolts?
Thats what I was thinking. If I understand correctly, if I don't hook up the electrical connector for the clutch, it should never engage the pump and it will act just like an idler pulley.
How many bolts hold this thing onto the motor? I really can't see them too well, it looks like 3 of them.
Do you think I'd be able to just disconnect the hoses, loosen the bolts holding it on and take it out of the belt? Conversely, is it reasonable to think I might get it into the belt then set it into place and bolt it down? Thus not having to deal with loosening anything else to make room? I was hoping there might be enough play in the tensioner to let me get away with this.
Obviously I can screw around at the junkyard with this, but knowledge is power, so any help is appreciated.
