There is a NAPA store in Brooklyn.

119 Clay Street, Brooklyn IA.
(641) 522-7456

Best bet is to grab a motel there and hope they can get you a pulley fairly quick in the morning. It's just a jobber store and the only parts store in that town. But they're not far from DesMoines or Newton which should carry it.

It's me Bryan, I got wifi at the Pilot, Yea this trip has been tough, The tension er pulleys just blew apart, It is very very very cold here, Guess that is why. Anyhow, I have the complete assembly and belt coming at 4pm from Auto Zone. I am lucky to have Kin in Des Monies that will pick it up and bring it out here.
But when this happened I lost power steering which I understand, But I lost my brakes too, Are they vacuumed off the power steering pump? I hope I did not sheer a line. I can not see anything, But if you have ever had to work on a truck outside in wind and these temps, You know it is a little hard to focus.
I still have to go to Chicago-Ohio-North Indiana then Laredo. Profit is now all gone.
If anyone is thinking of going into this business....................... Don't. I have attacked everything the right way and still can not make it worth it.
Anyone have an idea and the brakes??
I replaced that fuel heater and truck is still running crappy. I think it is just old and worn down, Or the fuel pump is weak.

the 7.3s have a vacuum pump that the serpentine belt runs and that is why you lost your brakes

Thanks Farmer, You have been very helpful as the rest have, But you have gone out of your way the past week on my trip to make sure I knew your support was there. you must know how it feels to be broke down 2am nowhere close to a city. Luckily we can diagnose most problems and it gives me a little better sense of security.
I sprayed the bolt twice so far soaking it with lub. I have not tried to break it loose yet. Is it a regular RT tread? I thought it was just a regular 15-16mm socket?No special tools needed?
