    Default Different Mi16 Accessory Belt Tensioner Pulley

    I have what I gather is an early Mi16 and need to install the tensioner pulley to get it running. Problem is, it is not the common style and I don't even have one to use for description/measurement (shame it was pirated to get another car going).

    Does anyone have a spare 'right' one or have a workaround they could suggest?

    On an AC car I assume? You could maybe bypass the compressor and use a smaller belt? The alternator should give all the tensioning you'll need.

    Thought that might be an option, using a tape/string to measure length. Aircon probably doesn't work all that well anyway (and certainly doesn't if the car is not running).

    It should be a 5PK710 or thereabouts.

    That sounds pretty specific - thx for the advice.

    Yeah I recently removed the AC from my car and discovered my tensioner had completely crapped out. I worried about making a replacement until I realised I no longer needed it! I bought that size belt and it fits perfectly (now there's no compressor in the loop).
