Read 97 exp.drive belt/pulley change i did...

4.6 97 expedition was pretty simply people. i used a coat hanger to feed belt to myself under truck. hardest thing and the last was trying to get belt over alt. i got wifey to slide belt over while i held tensioner back.tensioner was pulled to its max and i still had hard time looping belt over alt. BY MYSELF thou. NEW belt was "tighter" was easier by her doing it. i didnt remove nothing at all,didnt loosen anything....just bent upper radiator hose over a little at times.thats what will be TRICKY when getting ratchet on tensioner...lol . i SHOULDVE changed tensioner bracket (3 bolts) and pulley but just replaced upper pulley cause it was easy and old. 152,000. gotta do egr now....lol
figured id post this....maybe help someone.

Re: 97 exp.drive belt/pulley change i did...

Just a tip, you can take it or leave it no difference to me:

If possible, I recommend to slide the belt over a smooth pulley for the finishing touch. It can be much easier this way because you do not have to lift the belt over the edge of a pulley since the new ones can be considerably tighter than the one you remove.
