After spending most of the day trying I found that replacing the serpentine belt on my engine is non-trivial. Does anyone have a mechanic recommendation in the Austin, Texas area, preferably with experience with this engine in a Ford van?
I seem to remember the tensioner being the bitch on mine, but once you got that sorted it was relatively easy, just cutting your finger to bits. Also have to remove a bunch of stuff, but I was doing the alternator at the same time. I know I had to do the tensioner from the ground and with a breaker bar. Sorry don’t know any shops in Austin.
