Can I do this?

Is it possible to re-tighten the drivebelt tensioner in a 1991 Explorer or,
will I need a new apparatus? It seems that the pulley is rubbing against the
tensioner itself. In particular the part that juts out and accepts the bolt
that holds the pulley. ( I hope someone understands that :) )

Thanks

You can buy a new pulley w/bearing or a whole new tensioner at your FLAPS.
Neither is expensive. If the pulley is rubbing the tensioner, you need the
pulley, at least.
