It is lose, pour some coke on it. Wait a day or the next time you go out, if it stops...the belt is lose or too big.

First try and tighten the belt. You can also get a spray can of belt dressing at an auto store if the belt is glazed a bit from slipping. That should solve the problem.

Coke huh…?

Not a stupid response at all. Pouring coke on the belt is a quick way of making it sticky and stop slipping. It is easy and quite effective. Belt dressing also works well but the best solution is to install the belt correctly.

"Stupied", hey pimp131 are you out of middle school yet?

Last time i checked you shouldn't make fun of people trying to help you. But I learned that in 9th grade so I guess we shouldn't expect you to know that.

Hey pimp… why don’t you try the other wake site with the rest of the ‘kids’. I see you are new to WW.

If your going to post here and ask for advice… the don’t punk the people who are trying to help you out.

Sounds like coke was just a quick fix to act as a belt dressing.

Grow up or move on.

Given the extremely complex nature of how a belt works and the difficulty you had installing one, I would recommend that you bring the boat to the dealership. Complicated services such as changing belts, light bulbs and the like is best left to professionals. Although, since you were observant enough to notice a problem after TWO MINUTES of a belt sqealing, maybe there is some hope in fixing the problem on your own.

If you do attempt to fix the problem, be sure to wear a helmet

thats funny... but my boat has never been to a dealer, cause a compentent marine engineer for a father can do alot more than a losey dealer, and just for starters if you think pouring coke on your engine will solve problems ... then maybe u should go to middle school again. Shawn i dont know who ur talking to ... casue i never said anything about taking a boat to a dealer ship, ive probably done more work on this boat engine that 1/2 the people on this forum ... Turtle you need to realize that when people ask for help, they arent looking for quick fix it ways which in the end lead to more problems ... Jeff why dont u go sit in the chat room some more ... and the only reason im "punk"ing people is cause a quick fix it up response with a product such as coke makes me angry, why turtle did u waste ur time answering with that ... and instead of being a smart ass you could have explained why to pour coke on my belt,... and i could have laughed harder ... and if you are referring to wakeboarder.com as a place to join the kids, i might as well, since they give more valid responses to someone question than this place. But who knows maybe i just ran into the WWthugs........

"uhmmmmmmmm duhhhhhh ... "if its lose i can just tighten it ..." and finally, drum roll please..... "and stupied responses make you look dumb ... "

Ding ding ding "we have a winner"

I give you credit, you come on asking for advice, insult someone who is legitimately trying to help you, answer your own question, and look like an a*@ throughout the whole thread, all on your first day on WW, congratulations!!!

OK, I should let this go but.

I think, maybe the belt is too big for the application, this guy has adjusted it to the max (Could also be too tight) and it is still squeaking, the coke will make the pulleys sticky and stop the squeaking,,,thus you could than figure out that the belt could not be the right size. (Or it would not help, and the belt would be too tight) Kinda hard to figure out the problem from such a few short sentences...I just gave you an option to try. But in those same sentences and the ones that followed, you were able to convince at least 6 people that you are a complete moron.....and they are just the ones who responded.

"Dealer ship".....I'm sorry but that is funny.

last time I checked if a belt is to loose it will squeal if to tight all you will do is eat up your water pump and alt bearings but the belt will not squeal. For a person that says he has worked on more engines than most people on WW a simple belt install my 8 year old could get right and if Daddy is a marine engineer you would think he could tell you what is wrong. The best thing you could do is go to the other site and ask the little kiddys there that way the answer will be more on your level.

A smart person would have looked for what caused the problem with the first belt??? Sorry, I can not help as I too am a dumbo, and know nothing about technical stuff.
