Best Answer

In the center of the drum/pully there is a bolt (or nut, depending). This is what is locking the pully in place. Loosen it (no more than it takes to free it) befor turning the adjuster. Be sure to loosly snug it down to check your final adjustment and if correct, then you can tighten it all the way. (If it is too loose when the adjustment is set then the drum/pully will move when you tighten it and throw off the adjustment.)

Does a car have a pulley?

The engine usually has an idler and/or tensioning pulley as well as a few pulleys that use the power of a traveling serpentine belt to drive components such as the alternator, a/c pump, etc. Any of the pulleys that have one or more grooves that assist to guide the belt(s) are, technically, sheaves. Idler or tensioner pulleys that are completely flat because the flat back of the belt rides on them are not sheaves, but are pulleys.

Is the Idler Pulley on the GM 3800 II reverse thread?

Hey, yes the Idler Pully nut is reverse tread (you have to turn right to loosen this) this is because you turn left to loosen belt tension. I believe this is true for a lot of GM engines.
