in that picture, the belt tensioner is where the ps pump was. i cant really tell if they still have the ps pump either. it looks like theres just the alternator, water pump, crank and the tensioner. he had to move the tensioner so that it could apply pressure on the belt. and that metal bar is for support

it cleans up the engine bay move so you dont have to see that tensioner and you can get the march tensioner and the alt bracket for $85 on the March website and i think $80 on eBay

the tensioner is what takes away the play in the belt. and in that first picture you posted there is a tensioner, its on the right
