What inlet manifold will you be using?

That will decide which belt tensioner you need.

Oh, and you MUST have done the thermo fan conversion first or plan to do it at the same time as the EF/EL water pump can't have the fan mounted to it.

Here is a link to when I converted my old ED motor.

Angle grinder + EF/EL Tensioner is the way to go!

The link BenJ provided will apply for you and it explains the XH belt tensioner you will require or you can use the EF/EL one but you need to follow the notes provided.
