  1. I am handy with tools and carpentry, but have very limited experience with motors. My serpentine belt broke, and the local dealer who winterized and stores my boat is telling me July before they can get out. I have called several others, with no success, so I am going to replace it myself. I have the belt and a diagram. Since I have never replaced one before, any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW i am located in Ventnor if anyone with experience is interested in changing it for a fee. I looked at it yesterday afternoon. The first hurtle is the belt goes around two water hoses going to the impeller(?) and a round metal bar that appears to be bolted to the block. I see the impeller (?) has 4 small bolts. Am i better to remove the water hoses and the metal bar vs taking off the 4 bolts holding on what I think is the impeller ? Next questions is which pulley is the tensioner? Or do I loosen the alternator to slip on the belt ? If anyone has a link to a video, that might answer most of these questions. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Lee B. 856-906-2490
