1993 Taurus GL 3.0L V6 Belt tensioner and idler

Hi again all,

i had a bad squicking noise and jumping/clicking tensioner so I have replaced the tensioner and idler, and just couldnt find any info if i made it right - i know the tensioner and idler are the correct parts (also compared them with the older ones -the same).
i used a 6PK2155 belt and the tensioner pointer is like in the picture. i started the engine and it all looks nice and quiet now (with a/c on and made some turns on the steering) but wanted you guys comment about if its properly installed ?

Thanks for any help !!

There is no other tentioner for that car. It's the one in the second picture in the middle
under the one with the yellow dot. It comes in one piece with pulley.

The picture shown is not what my 3.0L looks like...my water pump is on the bottom left of the engine that's ran by its own belt and has its own tensioner...if you need a picture I can supply some later on tonight

Then you do not have a taurus engine. the 3 lt and the 3.8 has the water pump in the
middle of the engine and uses one belt. What engine and car do you have ? Do you have a SHO ?
