serpentine belt tensioner seems to be missing

Hello: I thought i posted this but can't find it so i'm doing it again.

Yesterday the serpentine belt on my 1995 ford aerostar came off. In figuring the problem i find or think i find that it's missing a tensioner pully...

What I need is a diagram or picture of the front end of that motor so as to find out how to and where to put the tensioner pully. I can't find a place where it came off so I can't put a new one back on but it seems there is something missing for sure.

the diagram on the hood only has pullys in their relative positions for purposes of routing and that shows another pully we don't seem to have but it does not show where the thing is supposed to fit to the engine .

Thanks,
Nate

since you don't say what size engine you might need to research it a little more but try this, AutoZone.com | Vehicle Selection - Year
the tensioner will be a bolt through the center design, look for a bolt hole with nothing in it or a sheared off bolt flush in it.

the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

I would go ahead and replace the whole tensioner assembly. My pulley sheared off of my Malibu a couple of months ago, and I tried to just replace the pulley. Turns out the tensioner was bad too. Just a thought.
