Default power steering pump belt problems

Hey yall. Just went thru the pain of changing the ps pump and pressure hose. Putting everything back on. Now the drive belt does not want to go back on as if it doesnt fit. Anybody run into this same problem? Pulleys are aligned.

RANT


I find it impossible to help a new member like this! IMO This member is a perfect example of a forum new member abuser. I have seen the like on many other forum platform and they are all the same. Here even the name chosen IMO is a negative about the PT we all own. The new member has no introduction and not even a hello how do you do anywhere. Just start right in with PLEASE help me.

There is not even basic information about the PT they are asking help for?

Next time try reading the forum new member information first.



And the fact that this "new" member joined 24 Feb 2011 and no posts until June 30 of this year (2) and today (2) today kind of says something as well.

off RANT

Mr/ or Miss @NitroPT. To my understanding abuse is multiple (meaning more than three posts in 3 years) harrasing incidents. Personally I'm not online forum savvy. Maybe personally in boxing me with help on new member etiquette would have been a better approach. Im sure we are all have different uses for this forum compared to your personal "rant".

You should try it

It helps to know the member you may be responding to a thread on.

As for my usage of the word "abuse", as you said it has many meanings.
Getting to know people before you jump in and start asking questions for help is generally viewed as courteous ?

Seriously you would not get the time of day in any real world circle of knowledgeable people if you walked up and just started asking for help without an introduction.

Once again I refer to the fact that I am not forum savy, nor am I the big 5000+ post extrovert like you. It says General Pt Cruiser discussions. I don't see anywhere where it says Social Network, where I have to be best friends with folks in order to post General questions.

And obviously only did saw my post count and nothing more.
And you apparently did not read...

WELCOME and Forum Rules
Key points you would have gotten you read them.....

WELCOME to the Forum.
Rules of the forum have been updated as of 5/1/2014. Please read them over.

- We have a ton of great people here who are standing by ready to help.

We encourage all new members to say hello and introduce yourself to the rest of the community by starting a post in the Welcome New PT Owners thread at the top half of the forum.

__________________________________________________ __

So it seems you miss my the points?

You gave no information about your PT
Although some responded IMO I don't think they realized that?

Try reading this?

You just jump in this forum needing "FREE" advise and help which many are are willing give but at least be courteous enough with us.

Just my 2 Cents but you don"t have to be "forum savy" just "basic communication savy" would be great pretty sure there must be 100's of places you can search and find the belt routing ... "stressed , It's just common curtosity
