A good friend bought a '99 at my insistence. Got it home and could feel the belt was loose. Went to look to adjust, and saw it was nearly all the way back already.
Thought... that's strange. Didn't know the belt could stretch. Pulled the front pulley cover to inspect the nut, and found the problem.
The teeth on the stock front 33-tooth pulley were at least HALF GONE... just worn way down!!! No wonder the belt was loose.
Never saw or heard of THAT one before!
Anyway, does anyone have a good 33-tooth pulley they're willing to part with???
