Re: Replacing fanbelt on a 90 Topaz
The 2.3 doesn't have a fan belt because the fan is electric. The 90 should have had 3 belts. Two are "V" belts and one is a wide "serpertine" belt. The one "V" belt runs from the power steering pump to the alternator, and the other "V" belt runs from IIRC the crank pully to the water pump.
I'm assuming you mean the water pump belt. I would advise alot of WD-40 and some time. The bolt should loosen up to the point. IIRC it has a bolt on top that you turn to tighten or loosen.
