Dear Harofreak00:

Those of us here at the Bonneville Club await your response and have interest in how your problem has been solved if at all.

Please grace us with a reply as to if your belt is fixed and if the alternator was mounted improperly.

Thanks

The belt routing is exactly the same between the SSEi and GTP. The difference is in belt length. One of them, I can't remember which, has a slightly longer accessory belt, because although the routing is the same, one of the idlers or something is moved slightly.

Dear Mr. Harofreak00:

Thank you for the prompt response. Now get your butt out to that car and fix it properly! Not fixing the car will result in the quick removal of said vehicle from your possesion by the local authorities or your next ticket..which ever comes first.

The Management

So, if that bracket exsists, then your alternate routing should be acceptable, minus the mismounted alternator. Can't find a belt size to fit?
