FIRST START after Procharger install!!! Slight belt problem....

Well after a whole lot of running around finding the right lenth / grade bolts, fabbing mounts for my FMIC, finding a right size belt, ordering oil, making a keyway, and many more headaches... I finally got to start her up with the procharger installed. SOUNDS GREAT!!! One problem after idling for about 10 seconds.

The belt walked one kog off the AC Condensor. I think the pulley needs to be spaced a little after some visual inspection.

I can wait to drive it to the dyno down the street next week! 10psi

I had the same issue.....Don't run it like that otherwise your belt will say good bye soon and you won't like that loud squeaking ;-)))
I grind/cut 1mm from thos 3 small spacers that are between bracket ans SC...everything is OK since then...

Always check your alignment of the shaft and blower pulley. I managed to change belts 3 times before my stupid ass decided to check the alignment.
