1988 Allegro motorhome ( replacing belts)

Need help with replacing the belts on my 1988 allegro motorhome. It was made the end of '87 with a John Deere chassis and Ford 460 engine. I have a belt diagram but if anyone has experience changing out the alternator belt - I would greatly appreciate the info. Thanks

Not sure as to what type of help you would like. Usually putting a wrench on tensioner pulley will loosen belt enough to remove and reinstall belt. If no tensioner pulley, then usually loosen alternator and create slack to remove belt.

The alt. belt had dry rotted so it came off in pieces. There are two other belts in front of alt. belt that need to be removed ( air conditioning belts). There is no tensioner pulley. Do you know how to remove those belts. Thank you so much for your help

The belts in the way must have a way to be loosened and tightened. Either the A/C compressor or some other accessory must be able to be slid to create slack in the belts.

We can't find any way to loosen and take them off. I have tried searching the internet but there is not much on changing belts on our motorhome.

Why not try posting some photos of the belts and front of the engine, we'll try to offer some help from there.

I am going to try and send a pic of the belt diagram. I may be able to take a pic of the actual motor if this does not help.

Glad you're aboard. Best of luck on a solution. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

[Edit] Once you choose the upload video you have to wait for it to upload before you hit the reply/post button.

[Edit 2] If it's a photo on your puter you need to use the paper clip/ attachment button.

Thank you DieselTech39. I'm going to try and attach it to this post. When I sent it before the small pic of it loaded next to the upload video button, maybe I sent it too fast. Where is the paper clip button located?

Should be in the center of the top tool bar over the message window. You won't find it if you are doing a "quick reply". You have to be in the "advanced message" window to find it.

Ugh! The file is too large. I took it on my iPad and I'm not sure I can change the size. Hmm, I'm actually smarter than I appear on this site Thanks for trying to help. If anyone comes up with another idea let me know or I could email the diagram to you.
