Re: Broke two V-belts
"The install does not look to bad, but probably requires an impact wrench to remove the alternator pulley."
We had a similar problem changing a pulley. Took the alternator to a local gas station, told the mechanic "This is from a boat, not a car. We couldn't bring the whole boat in, but could you swap out this pulley?"
I don't remember if he asked $5 or $10 but it was way simpler than buying an impact wrench.(G)
