OG9-3 Idle pulley photos

Some may recall my issue with the water pump, short belt mod, idle pulley and air-con at Christmas.
I thought I'd post some photos of the destroyed idle pulley etc.
I was lucky to have a spare belt and pulley in the car, however, when the air-con pulley broke, I needed a short belt - which I didn't have at the time.

Below: Here are 2 idle pulleys side by side - the top one is a metal & hard plastic style 'assume proparts' version, and the bottom is a metal version - with its box and part number visible.

Your new pulley should also be plastic, just like the old one. The one exception is the no longer available Wazzee pulley, which was made out of billet aluminum. I found one OEM pulley on eBay where you can see the "PA66" marking, which is a type of plastic.
