pulley width?

Installed a new tensioner w/pulley. Ford part. The pulley seems a tad narrow. The outside edge of the belt is just a tad off the pulley wheel. Are there different widths for the 6 vs 7 ribbed belts? Would someone mind measuring their's so I can compare? Again, it's the tensioner pulley wheel I'm looking at.
Thanks - Bill

You didn't mention your year of truck. Ford has two belt tensioners for the 7.3 DI. The older 6B209 is for the 7 grove belt. The newer BT-44 (now also called 6B209 to make the parts counter jockeys even more useless) for the 8 grove belt. If all they did was input the part number then it was luck of the draw that you got the narrow one.

It's a 96. Thinking I got the narrow one. Don't have the original receipt. Hoping someone with the wider one could measure their's so I can compare.
Thanks - Bill
