Thanks doc, but this wouldn't work for me. I ended up pulling the belt up with my hands, and then wedging something ( the serp tool) under the pulley to hold it up. Probably the most barbaric way of doing things, but it worked. Now I'm on to some new electrical problems. This 500 dollar car may not be such a great deal after all. :(
