Hey Fellas.. just wondering if anyone here has ever used it..

I bought the Gates T1028 which is the part number for the legnum.. size was apparently 324x34?!

but when i got the belt.. it sure does say T1028.. but the size is 324x30..

is that right?!

when i was at APC.. they showed me that the part number for it is T1028.. and I believe someone here was compiling a list of parts to get the 100000kms service things..

Was it just the belt, or a full kit with tensioner, bearings, etc ?

The tensioner pulley is also used on the 3lt V6 in the Tritons. I discovered this when my belt was changed as I recently changed that pulley on my friends triton. I dare say quite a few parts are from the big parts bin of Mitsubishi. Not much point reinventing the wheel.

Where in the world did you get THAT price from, Mitch? They're nothing like that expensive, even with the exchange rate going all to hell... Someone's trying to rip you off badly, dude :(
