My local NAPA had them in stock.

Have fun with the snap ring.

That's pretty clever. I've always just used pocket screwdrivers and a bunch of cussing.

I've developed a slight chirp which I believe is coming from this pulley. Usually gets a little more pronounced when engine is at operating temp. I've looked into the penny trick shimming the pulley to stop the chirp. Sounds kind of clever but not a long term solution.

http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f38/30...ick-64595.html

Two questions:
Is it dangerous to drive with this "condition"? It's minimal but kind of annoying.

Should I even attempt to do the penny trick or just replace the whole shebang? I've read that in some cases of replacement, the chirping comes back after a few hundred miles.

Thanks for any input

do what you want but there is no right way to do a wrong thing.

------ Follow up post added November 15th, 2013 05:30 AM ------

I only say that as I have witnessed several denial cases where this is concerned (idler bearing, both V8's and tdis) that have failed catastrophically and owner looking at a very large bill to repair hoses, fans, and even radiators……..in stead of a very small one to fix the tensioner.

…..pulley falls off. hits fan, breaks fan, fan takes out oil cooler line, car catches fire, pulley goes into radiator…..but the car IS on fire so at that point who cares about the dents in the bonnet that are from the fan parts hitting the inside…..

actual story.

6203 bearing is very very common. I have a few new ones sitting on my shelf, I use them for rebuilding moped engines.

I would not drill a hole to remove the snap ring, it weakens the pulley. Just use a shim or stiff feeler to get under it and pry it out with a small screwdriver.

If you want to take a trip, I can press in the bearing for you. Ive got a press in my garage for this exact reason, and just did the two idlers on my 351W in my F150. They use the same bearing btw

After much cussing (as above) I got the snap ring out. I then ground a notch in the end to make it easier the next time. There's a thread in this forum where we discussed carefully peeling back the seal of the bearing and inserting more grease into the bearing. Be careful pressing in the new one and make sure you only press on the outside race of the bearing. Oiling it helps.
