Greetings,

BigBob :

What size motor do you have?

Customer:

2.4 dohc

BigBob :

Did you loosen all 3 bolts?

Customer:

yes, one on top and 2 on bottom that are the ones that seem to be in sliding type holes

Customer:

and it still does not move

Customer:

I would think that is all that is needed, but i can't get it to move to put new belt on (old one broke)

BigBob :

You can use a 1/2 inch drive ratchet to slide it.
