Sorry, my fault brother I meant the ider bracket. I had a 12 hr day out on the Firing Range with some new Police Recruits in this heat the past few days!!! It fried my brain,lol!!! Brett, the key here is to either add washers behind the spacers on one or both sides behind the idler bracket to bring the idlers out a little so that the belt rides directly in the middle or you might even have to grind down both spacers to bring the pulleys in a little because the belt was walking off the backside of the pulleys. You'll see what I'm describing should you locate the issue. Wish you were closer cause I'd be glad to help you out!!! Brett, lastly, was your belt cut towards the front edge facing towards the rear of the Rad or was it cut on the backside facing towards the front of the water-pump because that will give me an exact idea of what spacers will need either lengthened or reduced? (The belt generally walks towards the front or rear of the Rad which requires that you add a little washer behind both of the lower spacers to get the belt to ride more towards the middle of both idler pulleys) (On one of the 392 Installs I had to take about 0.50 off of the spacer to get the belt from riding towards the rear of the idler pulley) As I stated you never know what size spacers they're giving customers in these Magnuson kits!!!
