Took me about 23 hours total started yesterday and finished last night. I started it up and the fuel line wasnt cleared of air so it was a MAD tick and i got really scared but it cleared up. One Problem i am having is that my tensioner pully is slipping and i am loosing power and when i go WOT like a quick throttle rap my tensioner will stand straight up and my belt wil lose tension and i end up jumping my belt any ideas?

Two quick ques:

1) What size belt do you have?

2) Do you have the belt routed properly?


I'm sure you've done your homework on these, but thought I'd ask just to get things started for ya here.

I am sure you put on the replacement tensioner(?)

There is a "modification" from Magnuson to reduce the belt hop (I am still waiting for mine).

If you try to make it jump off you probably can.

The major increase in torque makes it very easy to do.

Do you happen to have a part number and source for the GatorBack belt?

Thanks,

... There is a "modification" from Magnuson to reduce the belt hop (I am still waiting for mine). ...Is this different than the standard Dayco tensioner PN 89222?

In the past, others around here have gone through Magnavolts like Democrats through mistresses. Could that be your problem ... huh, I mean Magnavolt, not Democrat?

Ok figured it out it is blowing the fuel pump mtr 30 amp micro fuse. I talked to magnacharger its the magnavolt harness there is a upgrade if your fuse holder is a soft rubber one

same problem i had.......kept blowing fuses, ended up that where i routed the wires from the trunk to the magnavolt was over the rear axle. when shocks compressed, it pinched the wire. ran new wire in different place and all is good.
