FYI- You can actually order from Cummins an 8x11 manual, ~3/8" thick w/every Cummins supplied part in the engine order including exploded parts diagrams. Cost about $60 delivered when I did that for my 06. I'm not sure it was really useful for me, but I answered several engine questions w/it over time here on iRV2.

I recommend doing a dry run on engine belt(s) R&R. Buy the spare(s), assemble the tools, take the old belt(s) off & put them back on, have a beer.


Right, Mike good idea! I just added that to my list of things to do if I ever get so bored I can't find anything else. I think it's right behind cleaning the dust out of the inside of the tires!

OK Harold, I gotta hear this- how'd that dust get inside your tires? Caught w/your sidewalls down?

Finally took a look at my belts (have a motorcycle carrier which must be removed to access the engine compartment thru the back door).

Oddly, my original drive belt # is 3911620 (cummins), which is different than the manual or other 04 ISLs noted herein.

My AC belt is 17475 (Dayco) and I noted that ted's 17480 (48") would also fit, given the AC Compressor's range of adjustment.

Jim, Maybe you have a generic Cummins! The 17475 & 17480 are interchangeable

Jim- its easy to find a replacement for the Cummins belt. Either take it off (gotta take off AC belt too iirc) & measure, or measure length in place. Go online or to a NAPA place that does trucks. Should be about $30. At the WRV store way back in the olden days they were Cummins & about $50.

Thanks Mike & Ted,

Now I know what I got, I'll start the search for a spare(s). The AC belt does need removal for my dry run drive belt replacment.

Now Mike, I'm not questioning your technical acumen, but I'm sure if I put a C Clamp on my AC bracket (presumably to make a prospective belt replacement easier), My buddy Murphy will ensure it vibrates off, causes untold damage and leaves me facing a SNAFU destiny, on a path I took to avoid it...

All in good humor

Jim- good point. Maybe you better use a higher class clamp, maybe a B-clamp or even an A-clamp. That oughta git er dun.
