    Does anyone have a part number for a tensioner pulley for the VR V6 ute? I have tried eBay and there are a few different numbers for the same brand. But type in ute and it says not compatible. I have been sent the wrong pulley before, so want to get it right this time as some of the listings on eBay are incorrect.

    If its just the pulley, & its metal, change the bearing. Cheap.

    Could change the bearing but mine is the original plastic pulley.

    Go to wreckers & look for a metal one. Measure the diameter.
    Then change bearing.

    Really, spend 5 bucks on petrol 10 bucks on a SH pulley and another 15 on a bearing, when they can be bought new for $30?

    Go on the nuline/gates sites to get part numbers. Can do the same on the Supercheap website.

    lf you call holden spares they will ask your vin, advise if its still a stocked part. Either way you can ask for the correct part number for your car.

    Just FYI, I wouldn't get another plastic one (Genuine are plastic unless they've been superseded), have seen the plastic pulleys sheer off their bearing before without any warning (probably due to fatigue more than anything).

    Supercheap and Repco sites are actually pretty good now, you can plug in your car and it will come up with compatible parts. The 'useful' parts list is a bit hard to find on Supercheap's site though.

    I know exactly what you're dealing with Losh, as I've dealt with the pulley size differences many times at work

    I looked up 95 VR Commodore and found 2 options depending on your build date
    Just measure your pulley to confirm the O.D regardless of year model, as it's common for a slightly larger or smaller pulley to be fitted as there's only 6mm difference in the O.D of them

    July 93 - April 95
    # EP001
    Flat Steel
    Width
    29.5 mm
    Outside diameter
    82 mm
    Inside diameter
    17 mm

    April 95 - April 96
    # EP002
    Flat Steel
    Width
    29.5 mm
    Outside diameter
    76.2 mm
    Inside diameter
    17 mm

    Nuline EP001

    Yeah it is a PITA Matt. My pulley is neither of those. I have an outside diameter of 90mm. Repco site doesn't have the correct listing either. No mention of a 90mm only 82mm, which is too small, I think.

    Dayco site says 001 but the OD size is different.

    004 is the right OD but the site says idler pulley not tensioner pulley are they one in the same?. Where the other listings are for a tensioner pulley on the Gates site.

    I know for sure the EP 002 will not fit as that was the one I was sold and found out it was too small by a mile.

    with the gates tensioner you cant fit the VN series one metal pulley with changeable bearing ...they have added webbing to the shaft and it fouls the pulley body but the plastic one's fit fine.....
