70 challenger belt problem

03-17-2012, 07:44 PM
My father-in-law, 78 years young, has restored the 70 challenger 440 six pack that he used to drag race decades ago. God bless him! :-) But he's having an issue he can't figure out, both the power steering and alternator belts are wearing out super fast, throwing belt debris all up on the underside of the hood, etc. He is sure they're not over or under tightened, the pulleys are in good shape and everything's lined up. He's tried a couple different sets/brands of belts, any ideas or advice that would help him out would be greatly appreciated, just like to see him enjoy his ride while he can without worrying about things. Thanks!
