V belts on 560


I bought a 13x960 belt for the AC. The belt should be routed from the crank pulley to the ac pulley to the idler pulley.

I have the tool for losening the screw. I losened it, and now I cant get the belt on. I have the correct belt I think, but I cant get it over the crank pulley, etc.

I know that this system was changed from r12 to r134a. Maybe the new compressor has a different diameter pulley. Could someone give me some insight or maybe measure their pulleys to so I can compair them to mine. Please email a response.


No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
