Gator1 OK this is a first. Went for a drive to the hardware store and out of nowhere I get this BEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEP going off like the truck is going to explode. I look at the display on the PWM and everything is blinking as I'm trying to read what it says. "Low coolant Temp" lol OK apparently this has an alarm set if the coolant goes below 102*F it goes off! I already switched to my winter grill now it looks like I need to block some panels...It's nice to have a good radiator, there are worse problems to have!

Gator1 here's a much better pic. I did some grinding on the plastic for extra room, but with a 6 rib belt it clears, and so far no slipping detected since I removed the Fan, water pump and idler pulleys. The belt I have on there now is a Gates K060820 or a 6 rib 82" belt.

Gator1 6 rib belt clears easily so would a 7 rib I imagine, I just couldn't source one. The 6 rib has more tension on it being a 1/2" shorter, it's very tight. Yes pulley is same dia.

Edit; That pic was bad.

That might be the case if the belt won't clear with a 7 rib, or it slips with a 6 rib. I do think a 7 rib would clear, but I couldn't find any such animal, so I'd have to trim it by hand. I'll test a 6 rib first that will for sure clear, but might slip.

steve05ram360 or does it make sense to drop the pump down some by slotting the mounting bracket? if thats even possible...

Is the new ps pump pulley diameter the same as the old pump?

Gator1 Something interesting, I have been checking religiously to detect any belt slippage from the lessened belt wrap, and still I find none....However I did notice the belt now very slightly rubs on the crank trigger connectors. It hasn't rubbed through, but close to it. It's not in danger of touching any wires or connectors in the plug, but it may allow corrosion to enter in after awhile, so I put some Dielectric grease on the contacts. My first instinct was to get a smaller belt, or trim the 8 rib to a 7 rib and see if it clears, and if it slips. I don't think it will slip because the load on it is less without the Fan, water pump, and accessory drive pully's, but, it's something that needs to be checked. Just for kicks I got a 6 rib belt 1/2" shorter to load the tensioner better to try out.
