Stretch Belt Installation Tip
Posted to Technical Tips Forum on 1/14/2017 9 Replies

This may have been mentioned before, But is worth sharing. I had to replace belts on a Ford Edge today and none of my stretch belt install tools would work, Or fit in the confined area. I grabbed a heavy wire tie wrap and secured the belt to the pulley. Half a turn of the crank bolt with a ratchet and it popped right on. Obviously this will not work of the pulley is "solid", But most are not. Hope this helps someday. [stretch belt] [stretch belt]
