Ok, just to give you an update. Since changing the blower pulley to 2.75 I've had some issues snapping the idler pulley bolt that is located next to the stock tensioner pulley. So the issue is that with the smaller puller I'm getting belt flap on the back side of the blower pulley and the vibration of the belt is causing the bolt to snap on the idler pulley. So to correct the issue I'm placing an additional idler puller just below the tensioner puller on the blower to keep the belt from flapping. (see pic)

I order the pulley just my luck no one here locally has one. Ordered it on Friday last week so I should have it in by end of week. I've also having some spacers made for the new pulley to bolt up the blower and brackets, and will be getting them today. If all goes well should have the truck up and running by Saturday afternoon.

I'll take some more pics with the new pulley installed, and post them when done.
