As part of the continuing tweaking of the off road (soon) PunisheR Support Truck I installed the front camera. This will soon give me the ability to see the terrain immediately in front of the truck.

Today at garage day we replaced four serpentine belts and two power steering belts

It was easier than I thought and a bit tedious

The first thing we learned was both the /.0 and the 2.4 use the same belts.

Doing it on the lift made it much easier. The power steering belt tensioner is a 15 mm nut that when rotated allows the belt to be removed. The first one took about ten minutes to figure out then with one person on the bottom and one on top we got it down th five minutes.
The serpentine belt is inside the power steering belt and comes off second and goes on first

The serpentine belt tensioner is a 3/8 square hole to be used with a breaker bar. A long handle is a must
Once the bar is inserted into the tensioner the belt slides off fairly easily
Going back on is much easier if a person is up top on the drivers side to help the belt slide onto the ribbed pulley.
We did four today and found three of them were very bad. One had a crack that was very close to separating. All of them were cracked and well beyond their useful life

The belts are 10+ years old if they have not been replaced. The factory belts were all bad. Some had 10,000 and some had 50,000.

Yes, thanks I found that is a useful source of info. I don't do posts there yet though.

I got mine as a " commuter" daily driver. Now it has a locker, full skids, advanced recovery gear including a ground anchor, snatch rings, several straps, four recovery boards, pioneer tools, a 1kw generator with filtered power. its just about ready for Ouray and Moab.

I just got a fascinating email

"Do you still have Punisher and my cable??? I know you wanted to get cruise working, and I found one parameter in the cruise section that I think has the wrong value. Would you want to test it?"

From Ken Kelly. The author of LS1 edit. There may be a solution for the cruise not working!

We are exchanging email messages. He sent me a new USB driver for the cable. Interesting

We did several more belt sets on Saturday. One thing I found is locating the belts can be a real pain. I went to Napa and they had to order the power steering belt from Seattle! None in Colorado.

I highly recommend that you find a spare set and keep it close.

When I went looking even the local GM dealers don't have them on hand. "I can get you some next Tuesday . . . ." was the response.

Received the new tune. I need to find time to install the new software then upload the tune. More to come.

He told me that he made one set of Solstice cables and that they are all sold. Without a cable you cant access the tune. Currently only DDM, Werks and Wade have the license that allows them to tune multiple cars.
