Are you replacing it or the belt or both or some other reason for removal?

I'm replacing belt and tensioner. The belt was bad and when I replace it discovered tensioner was bad

Yes I was aware. I had looked at some diagrams of 98(no pics) and they seemed basically the same. I have another question. What is wrong with your tensioner? If it's just a bad bearing then just replace that and save a lotta bucks?

The tensioner broke, there's something like a threaded shaft that the pulley spins on. The pulley bolts onto it, it snapped when I took the pulley off, I put the pulley back on with the broken threaded shaft, torqued it to the specs and everything works fine, been driving it and everything seems fine im just worried about it coming loose. Whats your opinion

Your description is a little lacking in important details. How were you able to still use the broken threaded shaft?

I took the tensioner pulley and bolt and threaded it through the broken shaft and than bolted it to the tensioner

Sorry, I guess without actually seeing it, i'm not going to be able to give an opinion. Your terminology is not exactly compatible with mine. Too confusing. But in any case it's up to you if you think it's good enough for now.
