Bearing replacement for pulley and idlers

This winter I have had weird noises for my truck when it get below -10 so slowly I have been trying to fix. I replace one rib idler pulley because I thought the bearing was shot, you could see the pulley rock back and fourth. No fix. So next in line I figure the tensioner pulley was at fault so order new assembly through Tasca Ford. No fix. So at this time Im get pissed so I take off everything that spins and take it to a bearing shop, they tell me the bearings are cheap one Ford must have purchase as a big buy? Cheap Made in China bearings. So they checked them to find that all the bearing in the last 2 pulley were rough to spin so they told me that you could press the old one out and didn't have to replace the whole pulley. I got home press the old one out and some locktite around the oustside of the bearing and presses the new one in. Fixed. The replacement bearings are SKF brand part number 6203-2RSH/C3 That bearing number work on the ribbed pulley and the 2 idler pulleys and the pulley on the tensioner. About 6 buck per bearing.
