1986 Chevrolet 305 Loosen Power Steering Belt

A Chevrolet 305 engine is a large V8 engine. On the front of the engine will be a small, round metal pulley. This is the tension pulley. The tension pulley is what tightens and loosens the power-steering pump belt. In the center of the tension pulley will be a small nut that will need to be loosened to give the belt slack. This job will take you about five minutes to complete.

Tools Used: Engine-pulley remover
