Well after ALOT of work to make sure my power steering belt is straight and also moving to a narrower belt (a 15 series down from the 17 series the factory calls for) I still manage to throw the belt at REALLY HIGH RPM.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] This will happen when I am in a situation that I have to use ALOT of the skinny pedal on the right! My question is what do guys with High Performance Motors do? Serpentine (spell) belt? I have thought about changing from the v-belts but I was afraid of not being able to fix a serpentine belt in a pinch on the trail. I carry an extra of both the power steering and the alternator belts just in case. What if any are my options? This starting to really get to me, I end up putting the belt back on two or three times per wheelin' trip. Thanks
I've seen this happen on an F150 (long story that makes me mad again just thinking about it). We found that there was a little bit of play in the water pump pulley. Not much, but we could jiggle it by hand. We replaced the water pump and pulley and the problem went away!
