Holy **** I was expecting a fail and some fingers to be flying off. I was a bit worried there at the start.

I don't think a new, tight belt is going to go on quite so easily as the stretched out old belt (that looks like it is loose to start with). Funny party trick, but pretty dumb.

You didn't HONESTLY expect this to be anything but a trick did you? C'mon now.

No, but since I was disappointed that no limbs were lost, I had to make the sourpuss post

You're supposed to, but you have to disassemble the generator pulley to do it. The pulley is split into two halves, with shims in between to adjust how deeply the belt rides in it. Real PITA...

And actually, I'd wager that this might actually work for the alternator belt of a 1.6 Miata without power steering or A/C.

Any takers?
