I'm going to agree with everyone else - pulley is too small. However, the original and much larger idler pulley should fit in that location - just the pulley and not the arm and all that jazz that normally goes with? There is a MB pulley that I used for mine that has some flanges on the side of it to keep the belt in place.

You may even be able to fit the timing tensioner pulley in that spot, bigger bearing, bigger OD and side flanges. It can get really close to the crank and be ok and still be ok if its a 1/4" away from the opposing direction of the same belt on the other side as long as the next pulley up stream of that is not a tensioner.

TDI(s): 1996 B4V

The Comanche has started it's trip to California from the Michigan winter.

Here it loaded on Brandon's trailer.

Brandon says the trip from Indiana to northern Michigan was good, but on the way home he hit snow about the Indiana border so stopped for the night.
The truck will spend a couple of weeks in Indiana, they make it's trip to California.
