Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Toyota pickup and I am trying to change the alternator and fan belts but there is a small metal arrow or something sticking out over top of the pulleys. This seems to be connected to the engine and I cannot figure out how to remove it. It is blocking access to the pulleys and I cannot get the belts to go underneath it. How do I remove or avoid this so that I can get the belts onto the truck? Thanks

This is for your timing's been pushed or bent in the way. It's might be spot welded to the cover.
GENTLY move it enough to get the belt off/on.

Alternator belt replacement of 1989 Toyota pickup truck . there are 2 belts to get past before we can replace the alternator belt. How is best to remove first two belts.

Start with the power steering belt it takes a 12 mm socket for the bolt in the power steering . also loosen the bolt on the power steering pump pulley. remove the radiator lower fan shroud. It just clips in. pull the power steering belt around the fan and out of the engine compartment then do the a/c belt. That is the best way I know how.

Replacing broken belts 1990 toyota pickup

I found that it is embarrassingly obvious once you get the parts and place them in position. Each belt only fits the appropriate pulley in width and length. When the belt breaks there's no visual reference (as one would have if he replaced the belts before they broke!) if the belt diagram is worn off the hood. Lesson learned; replace belts- a simple task- before they break!
