you probably have a pulley with bad bearings. It might not even have anything to do with the timing belt idler pully. There is a serpentine belt right there too. It could be one of the pullys driven by that belt, and the t-belt might be fine. Remove the serp belt and see if the noise stops. If it does, it's one of those pullys.

96 aerostar 4L serpentine belt tensioner seems broken and spring housing is rubbing on fan and idler pulley is out of alignment is this a simple case of tightening the mounting bolt to the block or?

The easist thing to do is replace the tensioner. A new one will set you back around $40 and should take you well under an hour to change. Just release the belt and remove off the tensioner, undo the single bolt that holds the tensioner in place, remove, and replace. The hardest part is there isn't a lot of room to get your hand in there so you might have to remove the idler wheel to get more room, but again, this is only held on with one central bolt. Hope this helps.
