ok heres the deal, the guy that put my s/c on did every thing good except the idler pulleys. i think he got the two backwards (the stock pulley and the one vortech gives you), makeing the belt hang half off.
the one that was on the left has a red ring around the
center of the pulley. the one that was under/beside the alternator pulley has a black ring around the center. i tried looking at the part list and part numbers, but no luck, can you guys give me a clue on which is which?

My ideler pully has a kinda orange ring around the center, I don't know if ford uses a different pulley now or if mine faded from red to orange.

ok, so what your saying is that your stock idler pulley (the one that came with your car) has an orange colored ring around it, now that i think about it, mine has an orange red colored ring around it too. so if this is true, he did have the the pulleys in the wrong spot.
let me know if i've got this right! thanks xman

Yeah, I took off my pulley last week becuse it was squealing, and it had an orange ring just outside the bolt hole in the middle.
