    Vin 10201

    Well my old thread is ruined thanks to Photobucket, so here is the new one. I've had several alternator belts break this year and I got sick of all the damn belt dust everywhere. Unfortunately, it also looks like my crankshaft seal is leaking again despite being replaced at the beginning of the year.

    Before


    Progress so far


    I also noticed wear on the coolant hose. I'll have to find some way to protect this before I can swap the hose.

    After a quick search, I'll be getting some permatex silicon tape to wrap around the hoses where melted belt material had been hitting.

    FWIW, I'd change out that hose in the last pic over what looks like a nick/gash on the bottom side.

    I'll be changing both hoses going to the water pump. I daily drive the car so I need something temporary until I can get the parts and change them out. I also want to fix the problem that cause the nick before changing it out so I dont have to replace it again.

    Wouldn't that damage the belt then?

    Stopping point for tonight, my headlamp battery was low. My fingertips are also sore lol







    Without the asbestos heat shield, is there a point to keeping that metal piece there?

    Stopping point for this weekend. Left the AC belt off cause idler pulleys are misaligned. Still not sure how to check alignment for alternator pulley. If the water pump pulley was flat on the front then i'd get it easy. Still got plenty left to clean on the engine, but the rear is as good as I could reasonably get it.

    I forgot I worked at a manufacturing plant. I scored a lot of 100 grit silicon carbide sandpaper from our board sander. Hopefully it does the job for getting the grain and scratches out for the mirror polishing.
