Thank you for reading my post,

I tried both largest auto part suppliers in our area to get the belts and there are many different combination of them, but I did not see any belt that mentions the main pulley, and that did not made sense to me. So so far I have not being able to get the belts!

If anyone could share the belt diagram on this car I would be greatly appreciated,

Steven

I don't have a diagram, sorry.

It all depends on vehicle options.... IIRC:

If your car has no P/S & no A/C, then you have just 1 belt
that runs the water pump and the alternator.

If your car has P/S, then you have 2 belts, one for the
alternator and one for the water pump & P/S.

If your car has A/C, then you have 3 belts, one belt for
the alternator, one belt for the P/S & water pump and one
belt for A/C.

So... what does your engine have?

Thank you for replying.... I was wondering if I could ever get an answer regarding this car... The car has AC and PS. When I asked about this belts at the auto store parts, there were like 25 different belts, like:

V-Belt W/P & Alt with P/S without A/C
V-Belt A/C to alt
V-Belt W/P & Alt without P/S without A/C
V-Belt W/P & P/S
V-Belt W/P & A/C
V-Belt W/P & alt w/o P/S w/o A/C
V-Belt W/P & alt w P/S w/o A/C

How does this combination belts work??? I am really lost here

See attached image (don't laugh)...

Check to make sure that you have the same pulley arrangement.

First put the alternator belt on
Then the A/C belt
Then the W/p & P/s

You need to adjust the tension of the A/C belt before you
can adjust the alternator belt.

Boy, hats off to you!!! You gave me the answer that not even the auto parts store could not since all they get on their screens was a bunch of belts, without any diagram to make sense of at all...

I am printing your diagram and bring it to the store tomorrow :)

Thank you so kindly,

Steven

Hey, that is even better since now I can even make certain by size. I really appreciate your help. This is a "project" car, it was mine and use to have great fun with it, but has being parked on my driveway for about 5 years... So now I am trying to wake this car up from such a long sleep. I put a battery on the car today, and after putting some oil in the pistons I got it to turn over!!! So, next in my list is to drain the gas since it is probably turpentine by now, replace the gas filter, put some fresh gas, and install the new belts. I hope I can get it to start then no problem, then I will change the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and air filter.

Once I get there, I will check the brakes, replace all shocks and a deep clean! The body and the interior is in great shape, and that engine can really go fast!

So if you are interested, I will keep posting as I advance and any other challenges I find in the way :)

I am glad I found this place,

Steven

Ps. If I forgot anything in my to do list, please feel free to add them.

Hello everyone,

Well, I got the belts which is great!!!! Thank you. Then I was working in replacing the thermostat when I realized that I throw the bolts away with all the trash by accident!

I know, how silly! Would anyone knows the size of those bolts so I could get replacement ones?

Many thanks

Hello FKH161,

I was able to get the bolts, and funny enough, the auto store sold me the wrong Thermostat! Nevertheless, I close it and fill in the radiator reservoir so I can keep working on the car. The engine is turning and if I apply starting fluid the engine will start. but regardless of how many times I push the gas pedal, I cannot smell gas.... I have already replace the gas filter, and put 5 gallons of fresh gas in the tank. There most be about 1/2 tank of old gas there, but I have the feeling that the gas is not reaching to the carb. I checked the fuse for the gas pump and it is OK, I then open that hose you see pointing on the picture and filled it up as much as I could with gas, and the engine will stay on for about a minute. I tried to get very close to the pump while someone turned the key but I was not able to hear anything at all.... Would you be able to hear something?

What do you think? Could the gas line between the gas filter and the car be clogged? I just think kind of weird of a fuel pump dying for just sit there.... Would you agree? I did started that car about 2 years ago....

Also, I am assuming that the fuel pump is external which is located next to the fuel filter as shown in the second picture... I am right?

Many thanks

Your car has 2 fuel pumps... one inside the fuel tank and
the other next to the fuel filter.

It could very well be that the main pump (next to the fuel
filter) is stuck/seized. Have someone turn the key again and
at the same time you tap on the pump housing with your hand/palm.

Do the same thing to the underside of the fuel tank.

The tapping can loosen/free a stuck pump.

If you know where the fuel pump relay is, you can bypass
the relay with a jumper wire, so you don't have to operate
the key (if you are by yourself).

If one of the pumps is completely stuck, it may end up blowing
the fuel pump fuse... as it draws too many amps, so keep
an eye on the fuse.

Although the fuel may be somewhat stail, it should probably
still be OK to start the engine.

Having a peek down into the fuel tank would also be a good
idea... to make sure that the inside did not fully turn into
mush.

You can access the top of the tank inside the trunk (round
access port)... remove the lid, un-hook the sending unit
harness plug, remove the 2 fuel lines and un-screw the
collar nut.

Once the plastic collar nut is off, you can lift out the
sending unit with the intank fuel pump and have a look
inside the tank (as well as inspect the filter of the
intank pump).

loosein the tensioner bolt on the ac compressor and the power steering pump, pull the belt off from the power steering and the ac and put it on.
