I called Keith again today and had a nice long talk about my shredding belt issue. As some of you know I have gone through five belts. Yeah, no fun
. I don’t know if you guys have noticed but when you look the design of your stock pulleys you will notice a “shelf” on the two outer edges of the pulley (image1). This allows the belt to sit flat in the pulley. Well JR forgot about this “shelf”, Keith told me that without that “shelf” the belt would not sit flat and would rub the sides of the pulley causing extreme heat and belt damage. That is why they have the new and improved PS pulley. Well two weeks ago I called Keith and he sent me the new PS pulley and a new belt claiming that this would fix all my issues. Well the next day I installed the parts and drove about ten miles when I shredded that belt too. I took the belt off and examined all the pulley’s for alignment, and that’s when I discovered something. The blower pulley had the same design flaw. Well after two weeks of trying to get a hold of Keith I finally talked to him today. I told him what I thought and explained that the blower pulley has the same design flaw as the PS pulley and that’s when he told me that JR had been working on a replacement blower pulley as well! He said they had just gotten them in and he is sending it over to me today.
So all in all he is sending me yet another belt (my sixth one) a new idler pulley and their newly designed blower pulley. So all you who have the belt shredding problem, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I will be installing the new parts tomorrow and will keep you updated. I also wanted to thank JR for their willingness to help us out. Everything has been paid for and I am sure they made no profit off my kit. If you have been trying to call Keith these last two weeks be aware that he is JR’s ONLY tech support guy. He has to take care of every single JR customer weather it is their super chargers, headers, or gauges, he does it all. Keith is the man! :thumbsup:
P.S. From the drawing you can probably tell I am no artist.
