    How can you tell if you have a Gates tensioner?

    NFI :) they are not marked afaik...have a look at the shaft the pulley slides on, the gates one has webbing that runs onto the shaft whereas the stock on doesn't

    Did you actually try fitting it to see if it worked? Random question but what serpentine belt are you using and have you replaced it before?

    and this is the pulley that will fit on a stock tensioner but not the gates...shame as the bearing is cheap to replace and its shinny :) 20190208_144610_HDR.jpg

    yes i tried it and the belt was loose. I have replaced the belt twice and have an old one as well that i fitted from a wrecker that i used when i was waiting for the new one to arrive. I run a Dayco belt with A/C. I was only aware of two variations of belt for the VR V6.

    I reckon that's problem solved :)

    Dayco 89001 is plastic and measures
    OD...…..90mm
    ID...…...17mm
    Width....31mm

    Nuline EP004 is metal and measures
    OD...…..90.2mm
    ID..……..17mm
    Width....29.5mm

    Either pulley will do the job, only choice is do you want the throw away plastic crap, or the Nuline pulley that you can replace the bearing in
    For what it's worth:
    I fitted the Nuline pullies on my 1 Tonner when I bought it 6 years ago
    I replaced the tensioner pulley bearing a couple of months ago as it was just starting to get noisy
    Cost me a total of $6.50 delivered for a Koyo 6203 bearing off Ebay….I can't argue with the price of a new bearing versus a new pulley

    No guarantee it will fit Matt. The part numbers don't even cross reference to the Dayco one I have. It looks like I have to go plastic. The one that is on the Nuline site is not correct its telling me a size that is smaller but it won't work. Some utes obviously have an oddball pulley that is very difficult to identify. The issue with the 004 could be the offset of the bearing. I have had issues before with this.

    It is looking like the only one that is guaranteed to fit is the Dayco 89001.

    The other Nuline pulley I noticed that has the same dimensions as yours was the EP007....No guarantee it will fit correctly though
    Another option is to walk into a bursons store with your old one and measure it up and visually compare them, I know that they stock a pretty decent range of nuline pullies....at least they do in Darwin anyway

    I honestly wouldn't trust any of the info on sparesbox site as being 100% correct either, for reasons that I'll just keep to myself

    Gates 38012 will also fit but neither cross reference to a EP 001, 002, 003 or 004. An EP 001 may fit but it may also be too small like the EP 002.

    I too don't always trust Spares Box they sold me the Nuline one that is supposed to fit but didn't. Burson's would have one but they charge me more than Repco and Repco aint cheap. I hate going there they are so expensive it's ridiculous. A pulley will be $70 at Burson's. The amount of times I have walked out after getting a price and then going to Repco or SCA and paying half is not funny. Bloody plastic adapter I bought of them was 4 bucks at SCA. They charged me nearly 8. I nearly said no thanks but I just CBF.

    Yeah sparesbox is a bloody nightmare - their strength is in quick shipping. Only buy by partnumber. Even the Supercheap search isn’t always accurate
