What is this part where does it go?

As the title says, what is this part and where does it go?

I am rebuilding a 9-5 aero engine (2000) and can't remember this piece! It could very well be for another project as well, we have a lot going on in the shop right now.

Thanks

That's fun. Does it bolt in above a CV axle maybe? Any part numbers on it?

That piece is sandwiched in between two of the torx bolts that hold the end plate on, oil pump side. Positioned on the back near the alternator I think, next to one of the idler pulleys, near the serpentine belt but not touching it obviously. It'll lineup with the right holes, but also a pair of wrong ones too if I'm remembering correctly lol

Yes! I had thought, but it does line up with multiple sets of holes so I was confused. Know what the purpose is? To keep a belt in place during installation or something?

Can't sleep, reviewing old posts here... I've had the same question. It seems like it's a guide almost to help keep things in place if there's ever extra slack. That tensioner moves a surprising amount, thinking it might have something to do with helping to keep the belt on during extreme moment maybe? That's just a guess....it sure seems like an extra piece, dumb engineers, putting all those extra pieces on there lol

I ended up leaving it off on my build. With your comments, I wonder if it is designed to prevent the tensioner from "over traveling" if there is no belt installed.

I use a 1/2" breaker bar to pull on the tensioner for belt changes. I've noticed if I slack the tensioner all the way my bar hits the cowl. Not a huge deal but it could be difficult to grab and close if somehow I took my breaker bar out with not belt on. I'd have to use something really short and still it might hit the firewall.
