Sam, if the quality of your automobile repair work is the same as the quality of your addition, I'm going to pass on riding in your car!

Make sure you follow the belt diagram that's posted on the inside of the hood (watch the video

Making is sure the belt is on correctly is VERY important. To get it wrong may cause everything to run in reverse... coolant, oil, D is reverse, R is Drive.... dogs and cats, living together. :P

Michael,

I've only seen that happen once. My brother rebuilt the top end on his Kawasaki Pighorn, revved it up, popped the clutch, and ran into the barb-wired fence behind him!
