You try that on a 110 day on a hot motor after 2 runs at the dragstrip

If these issues come back, I might try a Gatorback belt, and even a new coupler.


But yea, this 3.4" pulley is insane. The car has NEVER pulled so hard. It really screams now. The dry cold air does well for the */C.

Now I gotta worry about tires...
Kay, Sol yer not helping, I have this urge to get one of these cars to boot around in and preserve the Aurora

Good to hear all is working now, get to a dyno and lets see some DIGITS!

I have a butt dyno, and the tires will back it up. I'm having a blast driving this thing around. I'm looking for a car to compare it against, but nobody is out tonight.

< 5 min @ sears. Longest part was telling the guy who drove by i didn't need a jump, PCV didn't even need tools. God it was easy, love wrenchin on the L27....

My gatorback seems to be working fine, but my other belt never made noise either.

Glad to hear you love the pulley! They really do open up cars.

Well, it turns out that the idler pulley was going bad. The bearing inside sounded like it was made of sandpaper. So a new idler was installed and it sounds fine now.

I'd buy the Gatorback now, and toss your current belt in the trunk for a spare. Spares come in mighty handy. Just don't try to change one in the staging lanes at a local dragstrip.
Blood, sweat and tears.

Great to hear you're enjoying the extra boost Sol.

Sounds like yer pressed pulley install went better than mine....my friggin cheap ebay puller/press tools little bolt broke when I went to installing the new pulley.....broke off INSIDE the snout, no big deal right, just drill it out and use a thread extracter right....WRONG ended up drilling into the threads, oredered the ZZP snout that night DOH! Then after pressing the new pulley on the new snout with the 20 ton press at work it finally worked (after spending 3 more hours replacing the snout GRRRR I hate working on that SER2!!! the Bonnes much easier) Oh and after driving around for a week er 2 the belt slipped!!! So NOW after spending untold moneys on a new snout new belt and new pulley the thing runs GREAT...I love the torque gains.....but would I have done it all had I known what would happen??? HMMMMM........probly (too much fun blowing by those Stangs in a old man car )
