    On my stock 91 350 the plastic idler pully siezed up and self destructed (serpentin belt)
    Does it have to be another plastic one to replace it or can I put in a steel one instead
    Anything wrong with steel over plastic??

    (this pulley is under the AC unit on the block)

    :thinking:

    AC Delco 15-4957. This is a complete asm, bolt, washer and pulley.

    Four Seasons 45979. This is a correct steel replacement (pulley only).

    API 7145979. Same as above.

    Gates lists a #38006, but the front of the pulley is not shaped correctly to reuse the washer under the bolt. The washer is not neccessary, but it will contain the pulley in the event of a bearing failure. I don't use these.

    Thanks for the info :cool1:

    I ended up going to the scrap yard and found a steel pully that fit the application , it was just loose on a shelf full of parts so I don't even know what its from but it seems to be working:saweet: (for only $5.00)
