Um... it looks like that
Needless to say, that's not how I would have done it ...
It looks like he is running his alt. off the power steering pump pully
look at all the broken bits of belt all over the alternator - baaaaad

Morgan-
I have to assume that this guy's belt life will rival that of the star of the film Supersize Me.

What else would you expect from a country that drives on the wrong side of the road? :rolleyes: jk

Actually, I saw an old Ford where a guy did the exact same thing. Running a v-belt inside out on a serp pulley. Instead of having a 6-rib serb belt, he had like four v-belts set up like it used to be to take advantage of the extra space on the pulleys. I wish I had my camera with me that day. It was mildly amusing.
