Should have an automatic belt tensioner -perhaps it is defective

I don't think there is a belt tensioner. Belt tension is adjusted at the Power Steering pump bracket and idler pulley assembly.

No, it will bolt up, but it will not shift. The 1995 is hydraulically controlled. The 1997 is computer controlled.
