Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

First we kneed to know why the belt is breaking, if the belt is still off, feel the alternator pulley, spin it, dose it turn freely is it notchy is there any side or up and down movement, do the same with the water pump, and trey and feel the crankcase pulley as well you wont turn it but can you feel any movement if you try and move it in and out, side to side.
