    Fan Belt Upside Down on Ebay Car?

    Hey, I have the same car and was wondering about the placement of the drive belt on this car. Isn't upside down? Shouldn't the teeth be turned the other way. I'm asking because I just bought new belts to put on mine. Pretty funny the guy wants $7,000 for the car btw.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=180243780016

    A. Why is this in the 4.x section cause that engine is obviously not part of the 4.x family.

    B. You can see that alternator belt is smooth side down so yeah the fan belt is upside down so yeah put the replacement belt on the way you though it should go.

    C. I would strongly advise against buying this car because of he can't change a simple fan belt I would hate to see him do any other maintenance on that engine.

    No it's not upside down. Some belt manufacturers make belts looking this way.

    If I recall, the '84 Eldo was a 4.1L Longitudinal mount though, TH 425 FWD, maybe TH325 not sure.

    But if it was the 4.1 then is would say High Technology 4.1 on the air cleaner and I don't believe that 425 or 325 are part of the 4.x family either but I could be wrong

    HT4100


    I wouldn't buy the car because it is over priced. I was just inquiring about the belt.

    that's definitely a ht4100. the air cleaner must be a replacement. you can see the p/s pump reservoir on the fan shroud, the belt-driven vacuum pump, and the AIR solenoid.
