Default Alternator + Alt Pulley Tools

Anyone have the metalnerd alternator tools required for the pulley job that they wouldn't mind lending?

Found my tensioner strut pretty beat up and loose and shaking. Going to check the alt pulley but it sounds like I'll need tensioner+idler+alternator pulley to fix it up good.

I have the set, up north of you a good 40 minutes, but send me a pm if you don't mind the drive. I also suggest soaring on a creeping lubricant in the meantime, mine was a real bugger to break loose.

Thanks 2Many I'll let you know. Going to inspect the alt pulley and if it needs to be replaced with the tensioner I'll make the trip up to borrow the tool.

It came off fine, although I did take the alternator out of the car. Unless you modify the PA bit then you can't do it with that kit at least while the alt is still hooked up. Wasn't too bad, just some figuring and fiddling with the alt for the first time I took it off.

Yeah saw the guide, I was in a bit of a rush to do it that day before a road trip and wasn't well equipped to modify it. It went pretty smoothly after I figured out how to wiggle the alt out.

Thanks for the help.
