it is actually easy come to think of it. I did my own LIM leak about a month ago and put my new crank pulley this last weekend along with a goodyear belt. Just draw a picture of it or look at the diagram on the power steering or water pump.

yea its not too hard to do this, it is a lot easier if you get someone to help you, then you have one person to turn the belt tensioner and one person to put on the belt. i always have my dad help me and it goes on real quick

no no no

Take tape and put a small piece on the top or bottom of the pullies depending on which way the belt goes. For example: if the belt goes over the top of the pully put tape on the top of the pully. If it the belt goes under the pully put tape on the bottom of the pully.
Do this to all the pullies and your set.

And hope the pully doesn't move.

Take a picture with your camera phone.
