I really like pb blaster. May take a while to soak in well worth a try. If that fails Terry to heat the nut with a torch. You don't need an ixy acetelyne set up a propane or mapp gas set up should do the trick. Propane is lower in heat than mapp gas and keep an extinguisher handy.

make sure the narrow side of the belt goes in the pulley; you may have the wrong belt; make sure all the pulleys for that belt are the same height , if one is higher than the others that may be the problem

Is that how your manual recommends changing the belt?

On most riding mowers, the deck must be lowered in order to replace the belt

SOURCE: Replaced Mower Deck Drive Belt.

Yes, there is an idler arm with a pulley that presses either inward or outward against the belt to tension it. In some JD mowers, the arm is tensioned by pulling on a long metal rod that latches near the edge of the mower deck, but without the model number I can't be more precise about that. Just look for that extra pulley and arm it's mounted on -- you'll see a tension spring, and you should also see a way to pull the arm away from the spring to place it under tension. Good luck!

Hi

After it's off make sure the belts aren't too tight. If they are then they won't disengage. They should be tight, but you should still be able to move then a little.

How to position the timing belt crank shafts of 1997 mazda mpv


Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Remove the wheel on the passenger side of the vehicle using the drive ratchet and a socket. Remove the passenger side splash shield, using the drive ratchet and a 10mm socket. 2 Remove the accessory belt(s), using a wrench to loosen the tension. Unscrew the bolt from the crankshaft pulley, using the drive ratchet and a socket. Slide the crankshaft pulley and the timing belt guide washer directly behind it off the crankshaft.3 Remove all the 10mm bolts in the top and bottom timing belt covers. Remove the covers. The drive ratchet and a 10mm socket works well for this. 4 Push the crankshaft pulley on the crankshaft just enough to engage the keyway. Turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise until the timing mark on the top camshaft sprocket, which is marked with a line on the sprocket with a number 1 next to it, is lined up with the pointer straight up on top of the cover to the rear of the sprocket. Once the top mark is lined up, the crankshaft pulley's semi-circle mark should be lined up with the triangular pointer on the block. The marks on the crankshaft pulley should be straight up and the keyway should also be straight up. Remove the crankshaft pulley. 5 Loosen the tensioner bolt with a wrench, pull the tensioner to the left, away from the belt and loosely tighten the bolt to hold it in place. Remove the timing belt. 6 Install the timing belt counter-clockwise starting at the crankshaft pulley and move upward over the outside the water pump, on the inside the guide pulley and over the top of the camshaft, ending on the inside the tensioner. The main thing when installing a timing belt is to ensure the belt is as tight as possible opposite the tensioner. Get the belt tight between the crank sprocket and the cam sprocket so the tensioner can take out all the slack without moving the timing marks.7 Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner to apply pressure to the belt. Use your hand to apply a slight pressure to the tensioner toward the belt and tighten the tensioner bolt. Check the belt tension to ensure it is not too tight or too loose. Check the timing marks again to ensure they still align. If the timing marks are not lined up, loosen the tensioner, move it back and repeat the last procedure over again until the belt is tensioned properly with no misalignment of the timing marks. 8 Install the crankshaft pulley temporarily and turn the pulley two complete revolutions, once again aligning the mark on the crankshaft pulley. Ensure the timing mark is still lined up perfectly on the camshaft sprocket. Reinstall the remaining parts in reverse order of removal

How do I replace timing belt on 2000 Dodge Intrepid R/T v6-3.5 L high output engine. Is there a book or somthing that will guide with with everything I need to know to get it right


Thank you for the inquiry. change-1997-dodge-intrepid-3_5l-800x800.jpg




Disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery.

Remove all accessories that are in the way of the timing belt cover. The Intrepid's 3.5 liter engine and small engine bay make for very cramped working conditions; it is thus necessary to remove all engine accessories so that you can properly work on the timing belt. Begin by loosening the tension bolt on the alternator with a belt tensioner, then use a socket wrench to remove the bolts on the water pump, air condition compressor and power steering pump.

Remove the four bolts on the top timing belt cover, using a socket wrench, then remove the cover.

Use a jack to lift the front end of the Intrepid and place the front end securely on two jack stands. Get underneath the engine.

Remove the three bolts on the bottom timing belt cover, using a socket wrench, then remove the cover.

Use the belt tensioner to put some slack into the timing belt, then remove the belt from the pulleys with your hands.

Line up the pulleys, so that the engine is at the top dead center and the two marks on the camshaft are lined up with the marks on the cams.

Place the new timing belt over the pulleys, making sure not to move any of the pulleys in either direction.

Use the tensioner to tighten the belt.

Reattach the top and bottom timing belt covers and secure them in place, using the bolts you had removed earlier.

Reattach all of the accessories you have removed (in any order), using a socket wrench. When done, place the belts over the pulleys and return tension to them by using the belt tensioner to tighten the tension bolt on the alternator.

Attach the negative (black) battery cable to the battery.

How do i change serpentine belt ply voy


There are two pulleys that have no ribs on most Voyager engines from at least 91 thru 2003. One, the idler pulley is stationary. The other, The tensioner pulley is mounted to a spring loaded arm and in intended to keep the belt properly tightened. The tensioner pulley is attached to its arm with a 15 mm bolt. The tensioner assembly is rotated toward the front of the vehicle by putting a 15 mm box end wrench on that bolt and turning it clockwise as if you were trying to tighten the bolt. The belt will loosen which will allow the belt to be removed. There is, or should be a belt routing guide mounted under the hood. Use that guide to install the new belt. Here's the trick. With the belt installed on all of the pulleys except the tensioner, position the belt against the pulley as if to slide it on, THEN put the wrench on its bolt, pull forward until the belt slip over the pulley and then let the tensioner rotate counter clockwise until the belt is tight. BE CAREFUL: the grooves in the belt must be in the correct grooves in the pulleys that have grooves. Check them twice from the top and the bottom. Good luck!

2003 x type jag trying to change serpintine belt.do you loosen tensioner pulley with a tool or loosen nut at the bottom of pulley with wrench.


Dont loosen the bolt at the bottom. The tensioner is spring loaded and could fly out at you. You need to use a tool to release the tension on the belt by moving the tensioner arm. You can then remove the belt and use the same procedure to put the new one on.

Fan clutch screws on to the water pump. You can loosen it with a big adjustable wrench (it is about 1 1/2" or 1 9/16" hex). Leave the bolts for the pulley in so you could wedge a screwdriver under a bolt head to keep the pulley from turning. Give the wrench a hard **** to loosen and it should turn off by hand. Right hand threads so you will be turning it counter clockwise to remove.

All you need is a 13mm boxed end wrench. The tensioner pulley is the one all the way on the bottom towards the rear of the van. You can reach it under the van. Slide under the van in front of the passenger front tire and you will wee the pulley. Put the wrench on the bolt and pull towards you to release the tension on the belt.

Replacing a drive belt how to remove and replace


How to remove the serpentine belt on a 2004 optra 2.0L:
I did this yesterday in my driveway, and it is quite easy if you are handy, you don't need to be a mechanic.
What you need: A 15mm wrench, a 10mm socket, a new serpentine belt, a flathead screwdriver.
You must draw yourself a diagram of the belts and pulleys before you remove anything. Once you remove the belt, you have to put it back the same way so a diagram always helps.

1. Remove your air filter housing by removing the 10mm bolt located at the back of the air filter housing, and pull the housing upward with some force.
2. Loosen the clamp that is holding the air filter housing to the air hose. Remove the hose.
3. Place your air filter housing aside so it is not in the way. Retrieve a 15mm wrench (socket wrench will not fit). The longer the wrench the better. If you have a short wrench, you will probably need a pipe that fits around your wrench, or another wrench to use as leverage to gain more strength.
4. Place your 15mm wrench on the belt tensioner. On the Optra, the tensioner is the middle pulley (probably the smallest), and place your pipe or other wrench as leverage on top of your 15mm wrench.
5. Turn the 15mm wrench Clockwise as if tightening the bolt. The bolt will be difficult to turn, but even freeing it a little but loosens the tension, and you can pull your belt off of the top pulley.
6. Once you take your belt off of the top pulley, you can slowly release your grip of the 15mm bolt, careful not to injure yourself as it is spring loaded, therefore it has high tension and will try to swing back into place if you just let go, you have to let it roll back in a controlled manor.
7. After you let the tensioner roll back into place, remove the wrench and remove the rest of the belt.
8. Compare your new belt to your old belt, making sure that they are the same. There are two types of serpentine belts for your Optra, one that is "factory installed A/C" and another that is "dealer installed A/C". If your parts supplier has both in stock and you are not sure, get both and return the wrong one later to save you time.
9. Put the new belt on, starting at the lower pulleys, then move your way towards the upper pulleys. Leave the top left pulley for last. After the belt is on all the other pulleys, place your 15mm wrench back on the tensioner and release the tension by pulling it clockwise. Place the last part of the belt on the upper left pulley. Release the tensioner slowly.
10. Make sure the belt ribs are on all the pulleys evenly and correctly, so that your belt doesn't slip off of the pulleys when you start up the car.
11. Put the air filter housing back on, bolt it with the 10mm bolt, and attach your air hose and tigten the clamp. Check the belt one last time making sure it has tension, and is set correctly on all the pulleys.
12. Fire up your Optra and listen to it purr. If everything is ok, you did a good job!

Please post this on other sites to help people, as finding help for servicing 2004 Chevrolet Optra's is difficult!
