Not one like that on mine ...

It appears to be: Engine off! Big wrench on the body, loosen mounting bolt to alternator, rotate to engage the desired fine teeth between the two parts of the tensioner, tighten the mounting bolt, recheck belt tightness. No spring.

"[QUOTE=nissanhbuser3227;548461]Surely the previous owner deleted it. Mines a 94 and the tensioner is very adjustable. Hope you find the right parts to make it oem AC.

BTW the clutch is not removable gotta buy the whole compressor."

The clutch IS removable, it's not available separate but it can be removed. I removed mine on my former 93 when the clutch wasn't engaging all the time, I ended up removing one of the shims and than it worked fine.

Have to remove the center bolt than carefully pry the outer clutch off ( or use the tool), than there is a snap ring that must be removed.

snap ring shown after outer clutch removed:

it's not a 93 thing, your truck doesn't have the OEM part, my former 93 had the adjuster that is shown in the factory service manual.
