Thanks for all of your help everybody.
Now that the experence is fresh in my memory (I have the sore knuckels to prove it) I'll add to the guide I used and answer any questions I ended up asking here.
Now to track down that damn shaking...
Two things just came to my mind:
1) Did you pull the idler pulleys? If so, when you put them back on, did you reassemble the guides in the right order? I screwed this part up royally and wound up destroying a pulley and a brand new belt. Check that cause there'* bearings there.
2) Regarding the shaking, when you put the motor mount back on, did that go smoothly? Tightened the the mount and bracket up properly?
