I removed the AC tensioner pulley today, and upon re install I started it up and it started smoking at the AC tenioner pulley. I think I lost something . The tensioner pulley is sitting flush against the mounting bracket, so when it was spinning it was metal against metal , and it started smoking from the friction I guess. I searched on the site and found this bit of information:

"There is a stepped washer that goes between the bracket and the pulley, but nothing that goes between the dust cover and the pulley. "

What can I use since I think I lost it? I'm not a mechanic, but it does not make sense something that spins being flush against a metal mounting bracket. Thanks for your help and suggestions. Its getting hot in VA. I was changing the AC belt(OEM), and the idler spins freely.

A dealer (cruiserdan) may have the washer? If not they are relatively common on Toyotas, one off of a 4Runner, Taco, even Camry, etc, may work, wrecking yard?
