Used to be, Gates belts were 100% reliable.
I gotta serpentine Gates for my Tbird, put it on very carefully,
the thing went to hell in 20 miles. Got a replacement belt,
it did the same. The edge peels off the belt, threatens
serious trouble. I gotta third Gates belt under the guarantee,
but I'm afraid to install <grin>.
I don't think I am having trouble mounting/aligning the
belt. I've reinstalled the original belt several times: no
Anybody got an idea what's going on with this?
