Hi, all...I have some questions that I'm going to put up here as opposed to the vSaab Yahoo group. I'm used to most of my questions being greeted with a "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard" response and I don't want to intrude on that group's two-stroke reveries...
My question now is if anyone knows a decent belt to use when the fan pulley is removed and the belt is just turning the water pump and alternator and the balance shaft pulley. I shredded my last one, and the replacement I picked up by measurement is just off a bit. I got the length ok, but the width of the "V" and the depth are just off. I try to keep the belt as loose as possible to avoid yanking on that bearing, and I'm not convinced there isn't a little slippage.
Thanks in advance for your advice...my next question will concern the various techniques, charms and immersion into the dark arts used in re-inserting those charming spring-bowed monster e-clips that retain the rear brake cylinders. My work-around will probably be met with horror...but that's another discussion. Cheers...
