Im trying to install a bdl 3 inch open primary the problem is that the belt is too tight and I'm unable to get pulleys on the shafts ...I've been in touch with a bdl tech and went as far as sending him my belt which he exchanged for a slightly longer belt still no luck !! Any ideas or info or tricks would be greatly appreciated !! Thanks in advance

I'll ask the obvious.
Tranny mounting bolts are loose?

Like I said. It's the obvious....but somebody had to ask. :dunno

Heat the belt up, just don't melt it. Use heat lamps or some other safe heat source. Also soaping up the pulley splines will allow the belt to slide on easier.
