Default Replaced radiator and sepentine belt

I had a leak in the radiator a while back that I sealed with the powder stuff. It actually held for several months but, I knew I had to replace the radiator. So, I found a new stock replacement locally for $100 and a new gator back serp. belt on ebay for $11. Which I'm glad I replaced because I found two deep cracks on the old belt.

My boy did most of the work...

Awesome! I can't wait until my son is old enough to do that stuff with me. Notice any difference with the new radiator?

Yeah, it did fit tighter than the stock belt. I had the tensioner pulled back all the way to get the gatorback on.

I know when I put my 3g Alt on it made my stock replacement belt tighter than with the stock alt bolted in, makes me wonder if the belt would snap if you tried to run a gatorback on it with a 3g.
