DriveAlign® Idler Pulleys


Tensioners and idler pulleys are a wear item and should be replaced when the tensioner requires replacement. 

DriveAlign Idler Pulley

The Gates DriveAlign® Idler Pulley is made to the same high standards and specifications as the parts supplied to the car manufacturers (OE). Gates has a complete line of idler pulleys for V- belt drives. 

  • Made of steel and thermoplastic, Gates DriveAlign® idler pulleys provide excellent wear resistance, heat dissipation and dampening. 
  • They resist dust, grit, salt, and other contaminants that reduce pulley life. The extra long life bearings are designed to operate under high temperatures and exhibit less wobble. 
  • Gates idler pulleys also reduce wear, vibration and friction on belts, thereby extending belt service life. 

Gates top selling DriveAlign® Idler Pulley part numbers are available in hang sell packaging. The packaging offers merchandising versatility for front and/or back of store or workshop, and has easy to reference application information on back of the pack. 

Replacing a Belt? 

To reduce belt warranty problems, comebacks and labor claims, Gates recommends that all Accessory Belt Drive System (ABDS) components, including the belt, tensioners, and pulleys, be replaced at the same time.
