I need to replace my belt as well. Did you ever figure this out? Thanks!
For anyone else looking to do this job, it's not a quick one. I had a rather mechanically inclined employee of mine do the job and it took about 7-8 hours. However, we concluded a 2nd time would take maybe only 3-4 hrs. TO CHANGE A BELT! Thank you Polaris. There are only 2 bolts that hold the pump in place. You should be able to pry it away from the bell housing. Then there is a gear attached to the pump that we removed by removing a large set screw. If one person pulls and angles the pump from the outside standing near the wheel, the other person can finagle the gear out of the bell housing without removing any hoses etc. Then take out all 8 bolts holding the bell housing on and the 1 engine mount/bell housing mount. Then you can pry the housing away enough to get the new belt on. Removal of everything the 1sst time is around 4-6 hours. Then putting it all back is only about an hour. One thing to remember is that when the gear goes back on the pump, there needs to be a small gap between the pump and gear to allow the gear to spin freely. It's a little tricky getting the gear back on the pump without 2 people, one to hold the pump out. And then getting the gear back into the housing and meshed with the other gears. You'll know if it's lined up if it slides in, if not, give the gear a tiny turn and try again. That's about all the advice I have. It's doable, just not fun or fast. Disappointing it's so tedious. A common wear item shouldn't be that way.I need to replace my belt as well. Did you ever figure this out? Thanks!
