I recently installed a tension pully on my 1999 ford f150 and installed a new serpatine belt. how come the new pully rubs on the block?


Was there a small spacer on the idler arm when you pulled the old pulley? You may be able to resolve this with a small washer behind the pulley. Just make sure you get one that fits well on the shoulder bolt and does not extend out beyond the inner bearing ring. Kind of sounds like the pulley is out of spec though.

Water pump


you must remove fan shroud. theres a tool for the clutch fan but you can use a impact hammer and a 12" bit (left hand thread) loosen pully bolts before removing belt (belt will hold pully from turning) then remove 4 or 6 bolts holding pump on (look at new pump for bolt amounts not sure) clean serfices and install)

2002 F150 the serpentine belt just broke. I think there is something wrong more than broken belt. The belt doesnt look bad>


check your tensioner and idler pullys for free movement. then check all your accessory pullys for operation. if that all checks out then it was just a defective belt

ALTERNATOR REPLACEMENT


Assuming this is a XG 350, the process is lengthly.
1. Remove the RH radiator cooling fan (two 10mm bolts at the top & wiring harness connector to it).
2. Lift vehicle to remove the Right Front wheel (then remove 4 10mm bolts securing the plastic splash shield & remove it)
3. Loosen the 14mm nut on the alternator belt tensioner pully
4. Loosen the tension on the belt by rotating (counter-clockwise) the 14mm bolt at the bottom of the idler pully and remove the belt.
5. remove the pully & the idler pully (three 12 mm bolts)
6. Loosen the 14mm nuts at the top and bottom mounting points of the alternator.
7. Using a floor jack (or vehicle lift), support the engine using a jack-stand & 2x4 piece of wood under the oil pan.
8. This is tricky - lift the engine 'SLIGHTLY' to take pressure off the front engine mount - loosen the 17 mm nut on top of the mount itself and observe engine movement. If the engine moves upward 'slightly' remove the 17mm nut - if not, raise the engine slight more until you see the mounting bracket rise off the mount.
9. Remove the remaining 17mm nut (deep well socket), and two 17mm bolts and remove the engine mount bracket.
10. Here's another tricky step. Some 350's bottom Alternator bolt bores are 'SLOTTED'... some are NOT. You'll need to determine wether you'll need to REMOVE the lower bolt, or just loosen the mounting sleeve at the bottom bolt. If it's 'sleeved', I use an air hammer to loosen the sleeve. If it's not slotted, I remove the lower bolt (it's the only way to remove the alternator and pry it off).
11. At the top is an "L" bracket which uses two 12mm bolts to attach it to the engine (head). One of the two 12mm bolts is difficult to get to -- do your best to remove it because the battery cable to the alternator is in the way.
12. Disconnect the alternator wiring (battery cable & regulator harness connector)
13. Lift the engine as high as it will go & pry the alternator off its lower mounting.
14. manuver the alternator upward taking care not to damage the radiator.
15. Installation is in reverse order.
NOTE: If your XG's lower mounting point was slotted, your task is easy. If it isn't, your task now becomes more difficult as you must align the new alternator to facillitate re-insertion of the lower bolt.
PS If not slotted, I use a telliscoping magnet to help re-insert the lower bolt.

Keeps throwing the belt off


I had the exact same problem, except it was shredding the belt as well. It even jumped off the pully after just distance down the road. Come to find out the idler (which had been changed out with what was "supposed" to be the right one) was the wrong one. It looked right, but after changing the idler out we have not had this problem again.

1999 Buick Park Avenue water pump removal


that is not an idler pully that is the power steering pully if you feel through the holes in the pully you will feel the 13 mm head bolts that hold the pump to the block remove those bolts the pump will drop down and you can then remove the water pump also you have to remove the studs using the inverted torx end on the stud to unscrew it then the mount will come out

High rpm when clutch is in 96 f150 5l


It sounds like the upper section (known as the plenum) of the intake may be leaking at the gasket, this is a common problem on a 5.0L V8. It takes about 1-2 hours to change, and the gasket is cheap, make sure that you throughly clean the gasket surface of the upper and lower intake before putting it back togeather, you will need a special tool to remove the center Torx head retainning bolt, it is a long star/torx bit, It is a T40 The MAC tool number is SC161.

Help me please


Remove a spark plug, Stuff a long piece of rope into the hole. Stuff as much as you possibly can in the hole. The rope at this point is a piston stop. Now you can rotate the pulley counter-clockwise until the piston wedges the rope against the cyl. head. The lower bolt can now be removed because the rope is keeping the engine from turning. Once broke loose, turn crank forward again enough to remove the rope out of the plug hole. Now you should be able to remove the lower bolt.
