1998 Tensioner Pulley

My buddy and I went to replace the belt on my ZJ and we mistakenly took the tensioner off, we remounted the tensioner and it's now rubbing on the mount. The washer is currently on the outside of the pulley, but putting it on the inside doesn't space it. When we first took it off, the washer was on the outside. Does anyone know what we're doing wrong?

In addition to the washer under the bolt head, there is spacer that goes between the pulley and collar. Sounds like the spacer is missing,

I'm not sure which is which. I have the piece that goes through the pulley around the bolt. The one side of the washer/spacer is really thick though. I presume that's the washer, but we know what assuming gets us.

That helps tremendously. Another ZJ owner across the street doesn't have the bushing. Just the spacer on the other side. I guess I'll get in my engine and try to find it. Thank you!

If you can't find the tensioner pulley spacer at least ZeeJay gave you the Chrysler/Mopar OE part number (06503230) where you could pick one up at the dealer for probably less than 5 bucks.

Right. But I climbed underneath with a flashlight and found it sitting on a part inside. Put it back today, and she runs like a charm. Thanks guys.
