    I'm sitting at the dealers watching them add the radiator hose clamp and do the flash update. I also noticed, actually, DrBuick noticed, the belt fragments on my engine. I thought it was just normal wear. Nope, it's not supposed to do that. I noticed some seepage between the intake and the supercharger and have them checking that too. Funny thing is, every tech and service person has been over there to look at my Hellbaby and a few were taking pics.

    image.jpg Actually you can see a little seepage on the other side where the plug is mounted as well. Why do I think we'll be see those bolts be replaced by slightly longer versions with sealer.

    Now I know the one I marked is UP from the bolt, but the fan and air pressure can move the oil in all kinds of directions.

    Those scrapes on the belt are very strange (and worrisome).

    Odd looking, almost like a something got caught briefly (cat claw, mouse claw, twig, etc.) and took a little of the facing off the belt...it's not linear so that will be interesting to troubleshoot.

    What's your belt touching? And are the fragments because there is a pulley out of alignment?

    Yeah, I tlf the tech I am trying to document everything since it is a new engine and there are tweaks here and there. He ordered a new belt and said to watch seepage. Like I told DrBuick, I'm sure I will be back. Nothing big but need to pay attention to small stuff. :)

    They are saying break in during seating of the belt. I'm thinking it will happen again.
