Question about 1997 Saab 900
A person at a Saab repair place said that they now bypass the #5 pulley (diagram the one in the middle non-grooved) and use a shorter belt. Just wondering if any SAAB smart people out there can tell me out there what the reason for starting to do this would be because I notice that the routing belt diagram provided here includeds the this pulley and the belt I ordered before I found this out fit this pattern. So, why change? Which configuration is better? more power?
This configuration eliminates one idler pulley, and one that is difficult to change also. Since many of the idler pulleys have a relatively short life eliminating one will save you money and aggravation.
