606 belt issue?

Post by Robin »

Please see picture below.
I had a new SS belt put on. It’s the correct belt but now I have an issue ( I think) with the alignment of the flex intake tube. It heads off at an angle. I do not remember it doing so before the install. Is it ok or do I need to do something like a longer belt.
Thanks,
Robin

Can you adjust the part coming up from the air cleaner?

I do not think so. The air cleaner exc. is screwed onto place.

In your photo the Honker intake looks off Center to your throttle body.

I have seen a few pictures online of a slight angle from the air cleaner to the throttle body. If anything I would make sure you have a good seal on all the connectors so you are not sucking in dirty/unfiltered air into the engine.

The Honker was centered to the shroud, but the supercharger snout (due to the jackshaft) puts the inlet to the SC slightly off center. As such, there is a slight "kick" in symmetry of the bellow. Looks normal to me,

It looks like my Honker is a little off Center also.

Chris,
Are you saying mine is within your standards and don’t worry about it?
Thanks,
Robin
