Check the diameter matches the original, and it is wide enough to hold the belt. If the sizes match up then it should be ok. You also want to make sure that it includes the bolt fixed through it. If there's no bolt then it's the diesel one.

 

I think the replacement ones ford now sell are plastic, but I bought a gates kit and theirs are still metal.

sorry for the lateness of the reply

 

fitted the plastic one, there's about 2mm gap between everything but fit it does and it's all good

 

i think i posted the video but if i didn't here it is again

 

this is with new pulley and belt fitted, but the 104k mile old tensioner

 

think it needs doing too?

It could be the tensioner or the alternator pulley. Take a look at the video below, you can see the belt/tensioner wobble due to the jammed alternator pulley at the 1 minute mark. He even explains how to test it.
