Found cost: ~ $40.00

From what I can see it's an easy job.

I just put a Gatorback on mine, did it by myself in 5 minutes, my first install.

Much quieter than the OEM.

Am I mistaken. Did you say "quieter". You did put this on a diesel, right?

Easy. Just replace it when it needs it. If it's cracked, chips are missing, etc.
Takes a 1/2" socket drive in the idler arm. Take the pressure off and take the belt off a pulley and just take it out. The only this is you have to undo the top end of the upper radiator hose. When the coolant isn't hot (there's no pressure and the coolant has had time to settle down in the block and such) undo the clamp, move the hose outta the way, slip the belt over it, and there ya go. Reverse for new belt.
You can always get a dual alternator upper radiator hose. They go AROUND the belt and fit into that semi circle cut out of the alternator bracket. Why Ford made it different, idk.

The belt noise is quieter, the diesel motor, not so much.


jesilvas-

Good write-up. I am not sure why ford ran the radiator hose 2 different ways.
I noticed the area for where the other hose can be ran & wondered if something was missing from my motor, now I know.
