Belt

I was trying to find my transmission dipstick today ( BTW WHERE TF IS THAT?!?)

Anyways I noticed my belt looked a little skinny. Even a little rough. Maybe it was my view but my pulley looked as if it could have taken on a bigger belt. Thoughts?

buy a new serp belt. I think mine cost $12 and its wonderful piece of mind. Sometimes when belts get extremely old they start getting wore til theres just a strand left, then SNAP!

Not sure. Huge pain in the as$ I thought. I guess taking the motor mount off just made life that much simpler
