Troth, just wondering, did you change the serpentine belt on your 8.1?

I have an 2002 model and was wondering how hard that job would be.

Thanks,

Mr C. I purchased a spare belt at Autozone, Kelly springfield part # 1080K6. I understand the Gates part # is 25-061080. Main thing to know is that this belt is for a late model 8.1 chevy truck and the belt is 108" long.

Jeff,
Go to the following link on the Workhorse Website. http://www.workhorse.com/Default.aspx?tabid=160 It should be an enlarged photo of the engine showing the belt routing.

Be prepared to go insane changing the belt. Mine was squealing after only 9,000 miles. It was still under warranty but I thought changing it would be a piece of cake. So I bought a Dayco belt that the mechanic recommended. OH MY GOD! I used everyone in my family, hands from the top, hands from the bottom, hands from either wheel well...finally I hired a troop of circus dwarfs and used a 55 gallon drum of Mazolla oil. It really was a giant pain. I have always done all my own maintenance but this was one I wish I left to someone else. If I had I would still have knuckles.
