Where is the tensioner location on this engine?
Chiltons doesn't have the right diagram pictured and i've tried loosening what i believe is the tensioner with no release of tension. Any pics , diagrams out there for my 4.3L ?
Thanks,

    There's some links in the Online Repair Manuals guide that may help out with diagrams.

    Anyone?

    Below the alternator. The pivot arm has a square hole just the right size for a 3/8" breakover bar to fit in and use to release the tension. Belt change is about a five minute job, tops.

    I love serpentine belts. :)
