If you are not using a new belt, go get a new one. Belts stretch out over time.

If you are using a new belt, look at the part number on the belt and write it down. Take that down to an auto parts store and ask them for a belt between half-an-inch to an inch smaller. Replacing your alternator bracket may have changed the position of the alternator pulley in relation to the other routing points. Since it is throwing the belt, the stock belt is now too large, and you should try the next size down.

SOURCE: Where is the asd relay on my 1990 dakota?

ASD is in the engine compartment fuse block.

The pump relay should be there also. Check your fuse panel in the truck though.

Fuses, Relays & Circuit Breakers The fuse panel box is to the right of the glove box with the glove box door opened or beneath the instrument panel (dashboard) on 1989-93 models.

      Follow these steps and it will help. But nothing is as good as a Video. YouTube would help at that. Drain the radiator by twisting the drain plug at the base of the radiator in a counterclockwise direction with a wrench until the radiator fluid begins to exit from the center of the plug. Tighten the plug back into the radiator after the radiator is drained.

      Disconnect the intake manifold hose, the heater hose and the lower radiator hose from the water pump. The intake manifold hose is located on the right side of the top of the water pump. The heater hose is just to the left of the intake manifold hose, and the lower radiator hose is located at the bottom of the water pump. Each of the three hoses attaches to the water pump with a band clamp. Loosen the screw on each band clamp with a flat head screwdriver then pull the hoses off of the water pump.

      Disconnect the alternator brackets from the water pump. The alternator uses an upper and lower bracket, each of which is secured to the water pump with a single bolt. The opposite end of each bracket holds the alternator in place with a bolt. Loosen the bolts which hold the alternator to the upper and lower brackets, then rotate the alternator towards the engine to slacken the alternator belt. Pull the belt off of the front of the alternator, then remove the bolts which hold the upper and lower brackets to the water pump with a wrench.

How to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8


When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif
