A/C tensioner rebuilt kit

Does anyone know if the bearing kit from Rovers North (614154) will work on the A/C tensioner on my early model #176 d90 ST? Is is possiable to have a machine shop replace the bearings? Do I have any other options than buying a completely new tensioner ($277)? Any help or advice would be great as the weather is nice and I want my truck put back together ASAP!

Take the pulley out, press the bearing out, go to a parts shop, have them find a bearing that works for you, go and get it pressed somewhere!
I have an ex MoD and an ex wife. The two no longer conflict with each other.
it is not hoarding it is selective collecting

The kit you refer to will work on most of the tensioner bearings used on V-belt drives in Rovers up to 1995. The exception is the very early D90 A/C kits that had an oddball A/C tensioner that used a 19mm adjustment bolt instead of the 13mm clamp bolt. If you have the oddball one, I believe that you may be ablt to have a new bearing installed.
