Keep shredding belts
Hey, all. Maybe a month ago I heard some terrible noise from the engine. When was able to check it out in daylight, I could see the belts were shredding. I took them off and started the car. No noise. I replaced them, tightened everything and started the car.The noise returned and I saw smoke.
I turned it off and saw that the A/C belt was rubbing flush against the block and the main belt started coming off the pulleys.I looked at the pulleys for the main belt and can see that the biggest pulley is misaligned with the other pulleys. It's as if the biggest pulley has recessed into the block a bit.
