Does anyone know who sells just the tensioner pulley? All I can find is the entire tensioner assembly, which costs a lot more and is WAY more work to replace.

Nope. That’s the idler pulley. They don’t sell the tension pulley.

They looks like same
And have same size - outer 70mm, inner bearing hole 17mm, width- 34-34.5mm
Maybe that's why nobody sells tensioner pulley because they same with idler pulley?

The race is set at a different depth inside the pulley, so despite the other dimensions being very close, the race depth won’t work. I thought about stacking washers in there, but those aren’t made for that. They would likely wear down fairly soon. It just isn’t worth the risk. Also, I can clearly see the bearing numbers on the actual bearing and they are different. The tension bearing has a lot more load on it. Again, I’m not going to risk it, especially on my wife’s car.

Another not logical thing from Toyota.
Replaced by mechanic tensioner pulley month ago together with A/C clutch and belt on wife's 07 CR-V. $20 cad at local store Continental brand pulley. Enough selection on Rockauto for CR-V. Why no any tensioner pulley for 2gr-fe if this engine installed on lots Toyota's models?
Anyway most time recommend replace whole tensioner, not just pulley.
