Q: Serpetine Belt tensioner. on 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Noticed that the Belt slips a bit to the right on the tensioner itself once the engine is turned on. Assuming that it is aligning itself automatically... In addition, noticed that the pulley surface is smooth...Is that normal? Greatly appreciate any info....
Regards

This sounds normal. The belt will move side to side a bit as the engine is running, and the pulley is normally smooth. Are you having problems with the belt or just observing?
Thats what i thought. No issues with the belt so far ;). Thanks much for taking the time to respond.
