You are absolutely correct... It appears the tensioner is different and works in the opposite direction... I've look for the difference between the parts online, but I can't find a non-A/C tensioner... The pulley is different... A/C is flat; Non-A/C is ribbed...
I kinda stole this pic off google, but it was easier than taking a pic of mine, in the dark... Apologies!!
Could you still make it work? Experimenting will determine that!!
What exactly is wrong with your compressor? The pulley bearings or the compressor when in operation? If the bearings are good, just pull the connector so the compressor doesn't run. If the bearings are bad, just get the bearing kit... Easy swap and can show you how if needed...
