Ding ding ding, and the winner is Phil!
I noticed, upon closer inspection, that it actually was getting more
and more off the pivot point, so I added a few good more whacks with
a bigger "persuader" and whunk, off it came. Nice.
Pulley is quite glazed with belt schtuff and is much larger than the
(correct) pulley on the new unit. I guess I should probably clean
the engine pulley with a scotch pad or something before the new belt
I'll post a picture and measurements of old vs. new pulley after I'm
done tonight; I've heard a rumor of bad weather and I'd just like to
get it all done tonight....but basically, if you've got saging
voltage at idle and a blip of the throttle brings the voltage up,
then voltage goes down after the engine settles at idle again, you've
got too small a pulley!
PS:just in time for the UPS guy. Hah. Beat him by a whole 2 minutes :-)
