I just killed the tensioner for the power steering pump and alternator about a half hour ago. This is the tensioner that is towards the bottom, of course :roll:

My problem and question is this..

I have the entire tensioner bracket off of my parts car, BUT, the lower tensioner is stripped out where the pulley bolts into it making it useless. However, the upper tensioner is still in good condition. Can the upper tensioner be used in place of the lower one?

Nevermind. I checked it out, it will not work. The tensioner arms are clocked differently.

I'm not sure if my '99 had the same part on it, but if it does and you need it, it's yours.

Not likely to be the same, and yes, the two series 1 L67 tensioners are mirrors of each other, and not interchangeable.

The lower is not that hard to replace. Do it blind from above, or through the wheelwell.

I got it replaced today. $25 from the local junkyard. I needed it TODAY, and simply couldn't wait for tomorrow :)
