Recently I replaced the Power Steering Pressure Line in my Firebird. Well, I noticed that the IDLER PULLY was moving, but not very well. Not thinking anything of it, I drove around for about 5 days, and the next thing I knew the Check Gagues light came on today, started overheating etc.etc.. I had a feeling that the belt fell off (maybe i didn't put the power steering pully on right, etc.etc.) Well I opened the hood, adjusted the Power Steering Pulley again and started it. I noticed now that the belt was riding on the back of the IDLER PULLY, and it wasn't moving. Now I was like oh shit. So I used WD-40 to see if i could get the pulley moving again. Well Long story short, the wheel shot off the arm at about 100mph. Now the belt won't stay on the pulley at all, and i noticed the bearings were worn out.
Now that i have to replace the pulley. My question is, basically all i have to do is take off the ALT. and it should be bolted in with 4 bolts right? And the only other question is, is it possible to put the power steering pulley back on too far??
