What is this pulley?

Hey guys, I know this is something that wouldn't be THAT hard to search up and find right now but between my jobs and finals I don't have much time. I know this is something a lot of people will be able to give an easy, quick answer to.

Which pulley is this? Can I replace just the bearing or do I need to replace the entire piece? Because of the blower, the size of the pulley is pretty crucial so if it's possible, I'd rather just replace the bearing. I'll post the video either in this or upload it to YouTube and then link it. I don't know which is allowed/easier.

Thanks guys

Cant see the video image that well, but it appears to be one of your idler pulleys.. I don't believe the bearing can be replaced, however I really don't think a replacement pulley is really all that expensive.. I would do a google search and find out if American Muscle, CJ Pony Parts have any in stock or look into Advance Auto and Pep Boys.. Otherwise check with your local Ford dealership's parts dept and purchase it directly from them..

Sorry, I didn't realize how much the lighting messed up the view. This is an almost head on view of it. Right side up, the tensioner is right below it. It is metal, I heard some cheap replacement pulleys can be plastic and that sounds no good. I'll look around, thanks for your reply!

It looks like an idler pulley. Steeda sells a nice billet aluminum replacement.

Looks like a replaceable bearing, but if the whole assembly isn't too much more, I'd go for it. don-ohio (:^)

I was looking for the replacement bearing but I couldn't find JUST the bearing with a guarantee that it would fit. I don't know how universal these things are but I'm just going to go down to autozone and get one. If the diameter of the pulley is different I'll just switch the bearings. Thanks for the replies guys

Or you can get a set of pretty ones to dress up the motor. I swapped mine out when I had to replace the cover.
