Guess who just joined the JRSC Belt Shredders of America?

That's right, ....me .

I think it's completely my fault though. I was cleaning the engine bay of my car with Gunk, getting her ready for a car show. Well, the engine bay looks brand new again , but it cost me a belt . I'm guessing that stuff made the belts/pulleys a little slick and caused the belt to slip and then shred. It happened at the worst time, on the way work tonight . Now, my car is in a parking lot that is marked "No Night Parking Without Permit." That's right, I don't have a permit so I'm praying to god my car doesn't get towed . I left a note on the car saying I would call a tow truck when I got off work at 7:00AM.

But wait, there's more ! My boss calls me about 30 minutes ago and tells me his wife is in labor, so guess who gets to work late. That's right again, me! Please let me car be there when I get off work. Please, please, pppllllleeeeaaaasssseee.

Quick question for you other shredders. When the belt goes, the car dies? Cause mine did! I thought I read you just lose the SC, power steering and AC . Like I've previously mentioned, I'm not the most mechanically inclined person, that's the reason I ask if the car is supposed to die. Otherwise, something else is also wrong .

I have never lost the whole belt, just a couple of ribs. Keep in mind that if you do loose the whole belt (sounds like you did) you wouldnt want to drive the car. The water pump is connected to the belt so no coolant would be flowing through your engine and thats very very bad.

the engine doesn't shut off if the belt isn't on, you can drive the car without the belt but watch the temp gauge or you'll overheat

BTW: I'm the president of Belt Shredders, welcome! lol

LOL me too...looks like TT is up for re-election

Brock how is your belt holding up? This is my longest lasting belt. JR did a real good job fixing our belt alignment...hopefully this is the last and final belt

2.5" idle pulley is for shorter fixed scissor plate (below P/S pulley)

2.0" idle pulley is for longer adjustable scissor plate (below Blower pulley)

No. no, no. I'm done done having kids, Dr. Dickchop took care of that a few years ago. I already have three college educations, uh children.

My boss is the one who became a new papa. I will pass on the congrats though .

My son is already looking forward to VTECing, he gets my car in 5 years when he turns 16. He already has 2F2F plans for it .

P.S. I DON'T want to be capitan of the shredder's team, I'd prefer to retire after this season.

Hope it works out. Good luck. Let's get rid of this club all together. The belt shredders club that is!

Update: put on new idle and power steering pulleys along with the 7-rib Goodyear gatorback Poly-V belt. So far the belt seems to be running smooth and strong.

Hopefully my belt issue is fixed for good.

i had the problem where the bottom bolt on the scissor tensioner stripped out. It actually happened while tightening my belt during dyno tuning

it caused the belt to be misaligned pretty badly and shred off one of the ribs.

Okay guys, I'm starting to get frustrated ! Last week I thru my first belt which I think was my fault from cleaning the engine bay. I had the belt replaced and now less than 60 miles, the new belt has already lost the inner most rib and is now back at the shop . These guys are telling me that one or more of the pulleys is out of alignment now. I find it funny that the original belt was on for 9000 miles/ 6 months with NO problems. And now this...

So, after my ranting, I have a question for you guys. Do you think when the original belt shredded last week that it could cause one or more of the pulleys to be mis-aligned? I'm just trying to be an educated consumer and not getting screwed on a repair bill. I don't understand why they didn't notice this last week! I tried calling JR to see if they think this could be a possibility, but the tecnical department was alredy closed.

My car is not at JoTech right now and that's probably my first mistake. It broke last week and was towed to closet place, damn AAA fine print. I will be taking it back to JoTech to make sure everything is done right though!

As far as the tension, I just did what alpha or tt suggested, turn wheel all the way over with AC on high and rev the engine up to see if it squeals. Never squealed, so why fix what isn't broke. I'll ask about the new pulleys though.

So far so good. It turned out that my crank shaft pulley had a chip in it. How it got there, I don't have a clue. But, it's been replaced and the new belt seems to be holding . It sucks, because we are having a meet tonight at a 1/4 mile track in San Antonio, but I'm skeered to run since the belt is so new. I'm just not ready to trust again so soon.

Welcome to the board.

You have a race version with what pulley size?: 4" (5psi), 3.4" (7psi), 3.2 (9psi)???

Do you have just Hondata reflash or K-Pro? There are many dynos but all are different because of many variables.
