Been forever and ever since I've posted on here but I do still check in from time to time. Regardless,

I'm finally back to wrenching on my galant and I have found assembling my motor that my crank pulley looks terrible, a bunch of rubber is pulling and flaking out plus it is nicked up etc. I plan to just buy an oem one to replace this. Cannot really afford ATI or Fluidamper and this is just an oem refresh block anyway.

My next problem is the water pump pulley is really beat up as well, along w the power steering pulley. Your guess is as good as mine what might have happened to them in their past lol.

Now I was wondering if I could maybe pick up this machv pulley kit FOR THE 2G click and be alright, tried to research on dsmtuners some but wasn't really finding anything that made sense. Id like the 2g set since it comes w a new ps pulley as well as wp pulley and then I would just add an oem crank pulley to finish it all off. Thoughts?? I suppose I would have to switch the belt up some from v-belt to ribbed maybe? Which might be a hidden bonus...

TIA,
-Alan

Odds are if it says it's 2g specific it doesn't fit.

I cleaned up my wp and psp pullies with a wire wheel. They came out fine. If your harmonic balancer is loosing rubber you should replace it with an oem or used oem. The stock aftermarket "doorman" balancers have been known to fail in short order. you can try to order a barkly&arnes and hope for oem, but oem is probably the best bet.

Easy enough to switch out the PS pulley to a 2g style pulley. Allows you to get rid of that squealing, overpriced PS V-belt to a nice serpentine belt.

My Dorman balancer has been transferred between 3 different cars over the last 8 years. Holding up fine.

FYI, not really a serpentine belt, just a ribbed belt. Serpentine technically means one belt that runs all or most of the accessories with a common tensioner (snakes around like a serpent, you see?)

I've been running a Dorman harmonic balancer on my Colt for a few years now too. I mostly use the car to rev to the moon and launch at 5750, so no complaints here. The V belt on my Galant on the other hand, wears out every 1000 miles. :-/

Your mom is a crank pulley.



Your mom likes to give my crank a pulley.

Serpentine originally was used in automotive industry to mean just that. Wheras V-belt or multi-ribbed belt is more accurate. In my parts catalog, it lists all multi-rib drive belts as serpentine even though (i agree with you ice) you can sometimes have more than one. Just a habit after working in parts for so long.

I think it's because people have an easier time saying serpentine belt rather than multi-ribbed drive belt.
