Another belt problem
I have had this truck for almost two years and have had no problem with the belt. I check it every time I check the oil and it looks great, no abnormal wear no signs of fraying ect.
Ok now the other day I installed a Edge Evo. and went out and run her hard came home and climbed under the truck to look at something and found pieces of belt hanging all over. I popped the hood and found the belt still on but missin 4 of the eight rows.
I went and got a new belt, installed it and then sat there and watched it run all looked great there was no wobble in any pulley's the belt appeared to run true.
I went into town and bought a new hose to replace the one I cut going from the intake to the map sensor so that I could install my BigBoost. because I wanted to see the true boost pressure. It's 7 miles into town and back at 65 mph and when I popped the hood the belt was still right where it was supposed to be.
I changed the hose and then went out 5 miles from the house and ran two 0-60 runs and 2 1/4 mile runs and then went home. I popped the hood and the belt was again missing 2 rows.
I am at a loss here. Now keep in mind that till this day after installing the edge I have never taken the rpm's above 2500 but during the first run and the test runs I hit the rev limiter at 3700. Could it be because of the high rpm's causing it to chuck the belt?
Again in all inspections every pulley appears to be running true and the tensioner looks good and feel like it has the appropriate tension, the belt does not make any slipping noises.
Has anyone else ran into a problem with the belt from high r's or overstock power ect.?
