help--99 LS1 idler pully

I have looked the net and can't find this, this LS1 is out of a transam 1999 model. it has 2 belts, on the side where the compressior is there's a idler pulley "guess thats what its called" thats slick on the part where the belt rides. no groves, none of the part stores has this, all the pulleys they have has groves. dealer wants 62 dollars and I thought I would try some of you guys before I go back to thedealer and order one-------Richie

Thanks but thats not it, its on the same bracket that the compressor is on. right under it is the belt tension pully for the small belt on the compressior, two belts on this LS1. I bought it from a wrecking yard in or around Miami. guy said it was from a 99 firebird or maybe it was a transam-------Riche
it doesn't have its on bracket like pictured and has a star bolt that holds it on

Bubble packed, its not--just crap.
I had the puley in my hand when I went to all the parts store's here--advance, autozone, carquest,o'reilly and none of them have this pully and don't have a listing for it.
I have the engine setting in the frame with no radiator so Im looking it straight on, it has a big funny looking washer on the back side and the front with a star bolt that holds it together. its on the same bracket that the compressor is attached to, has a tab sticking out where this pully slides on to, belt tension pulley is under it. it was sold to me as a 99 LS1--------Richie

i'm not finding a part # but i'd be off to the dealer with the pulley in hand or at least the picture.
geez, they used that setup on pickups, etc with 4.8's, 5.3's,6.0's.....
it CAN'T be that hard to find.

reason i say "off to the dealer" is that it may not be available aftermarket.
i've never had to replace one so....
the belt on the other hand, is usually crap and making noises

The pickup accessory drive system is different than the f-bodys.

If you had the GM part # you can go to gm parts direct and get it cheaper.
