Serpentine belt routing

OK, I replaced radiator, water pump and about every thing on the front of the engine and did not take note of how the belt was routed. (and of course dont have a manual) can anyone give me some input as to putting the new belt on.

Thanks

One quick note, I found another post about this for a '98 and the tensioner is in a differnet spot to my '87. My tensioner is neer the top passenger side, next to the compressor.

Routing should be the same for your 87:

many years

as a side note i would highly suggest you pick up a haynes manual or the like from your local parts store as it will pay for it self time and time again.

Kyle's right, so's balloo... the ONLY thing I'd disagree with in the slightest is that both the Hayne's and Chilton's, not necessarily in that order have sections that were definitely edited by that grand old dam, "Miss Information." Seriously, if you need exact page and paragraph references I'm happy to oblige, but there are too many to list from both. I'm not making them out to be useless or overall wrong, just be careful, ask here after reading before you begin a repair just to check, then go for it. I own both, plus the FSM, and I'm not knocking the Hayne's or Chilton's (not too bad, anyhow!) but they DO contain some wrong information and in many cases contradict each other. So -- I'm sure you're as thankful as the rest of us for this forum and others like it! Good luck!
