So I went to put the v-belt back on ( the belt that goes over the alternator, and the power steering pump) and my idler arm ajustment bolt is stripped. Do I have to replace the whole tensioner or can just that bolt be replaced? And if the bolt can be replaced do I just take the whole idler arm out and unscrew the stripped out bolt somehow? I believe it is part #2 on this diagram

I do not understand which bolt you are talking about? It is the one on the pulley of part 2? If so you should just replace the part.

I had the wrong one pictured in my first post. I found the part I need. The bolt that is stripped is the actually the head of the bolt that you would insert your 8mm hex or T45 torx bit into to relieve the pressure on the belt. I don't think only that bolt can be replaced. I think I have to do the whole thing...at 200K probably not a bad idea anyway...
