trucks broke on the side of the road...

My belt on the truck sherded unlike I have ever seen before. I went up to the store to buy a new one, got it there, tested all the pullys before putting it on and I cant move the crankshaft pully, now I was told by the autoparts man that I could, but i dont really think you should be able too? I dont wanna ruin the 50 dollar belt if there is a bad pully, so I am havin on the of the guys swing but with the rollback and load her up, hopefully there is room on the trailer...

All you should be able to move is the idler, tensioner, water pump, alt, a/c, p/s.

depends on the old belt..if it was aged and starteing to fray...all it takes is for that 1 little piece to catch on something and your belt looks like it went through a paper shredder...been there..done that...thants why I carry a spare...and change em often. Its quick and easy insurance. Doubtful its a bad pully. Put th3 new one on, start er up then watch as it turns...should spin right in the grooves sweet like.

How big a boy are you?
Unless you are just really strong and have a great hand hold on it, I doubt you are going to budge that crank. These things gotsum compression, yo.
