1985 SVO serpentine belt conversion help
I'm having issues with my 85 2.3l turbo throwing belts. Threw the first one in a rainstorm off of the alt/power steering side. Replaced both of them with Gates brand belts. They seemed to work just fine until I wrapped my rpms up to 4500-5000 a few times climbing through the gears then the rear of the two popped off again. The only change I've made has been to replace the stock alternator with 125amp out of a 92 GT. With a spacer behind the double groove pully everything lined up perfectly and has worked for several months. Ive kept from really banging on it (very hard to do) because of this problem. I want to convert to a serpentine system. Ive looked at several different websites and everyone and there dog sells kits for 5.0's but so far I've turned up squat for the 2.3l turbo. Any help I can get would be wonderful. Thanks.
