  2. If I remember correctly, you have to separate the motor from the front mounting gimbal. Simply pry this back, slip old belts out of space, replace with new belts, then bolt it back together. Seems like was 2 bolts or so. Mike

    ya but do u unbolt 1 side completely and just loosen the other so the (engine doesnt drop down)?thats wut im worried about.
     
  4. looking at the front of motor remove 2 bolts on the right side...this will let you remove the spacer to give room to change the belt...no need to loosen anything else but alternater bolts...changed mine 2 weeks ago in less than 15 minutes!!
