Anyone add a spring loaded belt tensioner to the 4.0?
 
is there any way to add a spring loaded idler pulley, so that i dont have to loosen the bolts on the power steering pump and use the adjusting bolt?

anything can be done with enough time, ingenuity, and money

i was hoping someone had already applied some ingenuity so i could save some time and money.:)

And so it follows that all are? Ya... that's logical.

Most if not all 4.0l ZJ's use the P/S pump and bracket to adjust the belt. The 5.2/5.9 uses a spring loaded.

Why are you loosening the power steering pump bolts? All you do to adjust the belt tension is loosen the 15mm nut on the idler pulley then tighten/loosen the long bolt in between the pump and manifold. Takes 10 seconds with an impact.

My engine is out of a 95 zj, it has no tensioner, tension is adjusted at the power steering pump. The two 93 zjs I have owned with 4.0s as well as my dads, all the same.

Could you maybe upload a pic?

Hmm. Didn't realize there's more then one setup on the 4.0L

The first picture is the idler pulley that you loosen, then the second picture is the adjusting bolt itself.

That's how the 2.5L YJ works as well.

JasonStebbins 11-12-2013 03:06 PM

Interesting. I'm glad I got the easier setup. :laugh:

Wj 4.0 have the tensioner, but component posistion is a whole nother beast.

shaban 11-12-2013 03:51 PM

Well, mine's done by adjusting the alternator, 96 ZJ 4.0 RHD.

93zjer 11-12-2013 04:24 PM

Anyone else laughing at this point? How many configs are there?
Imoprtant thing is I now have some info to work towards swaping my setup to the other style.

Ya, I kinda want to try and convert to the WJ setup hehe. It's possible that all you would really need is the alternator bracket, belt, and tensioner.
