broken idler pulley mount
I have a 04 F150 4.6L Something has been squeaking in the engine compartment. Well I found it to be a bad idler pulley. In the process of replacing it the engine mount broke for the pulley. It had some threads left that were still good in the engine. The piece that broke off is the piece that the pulley rests on. Right now I put some washers, spacers, and a longer bolt. It hasn't loosed yet and I drove 3 hours on it and it been fine.
I just don't want this to break suddenly while driving. What kind of fix would a dealer do? The mount is part of the engine block, so they can't just replace something. The whole reason it broke I think was because the tightened the pulley too tight. Is there a better fix?
