In the first post, the first picture "existing bearing", you can see a piece of the casting backing onto the base of the tensioner.

Would it be any easier if you just drilled out the old, instead of cutting it off then drilling? Just wondering. I have a drill press, but not anything thin enough to get between.

Cutting the old idler off with a hacksaw takes no time at all, and is less messy than using a grinder. Punch out the old bolt and install new parts. Once I had the bolt installed had to trim the bolt head so it was flush, lots of material remaining to remove bolt later.
