I have a 2004 Moomba Mobius LSV with the standard Indmar V-drive 310hp engine, my engine belt squeek whining when accerlating from a stop!

Is it difficult to replace the belt myself? Seems like the water bump is in the way?

I have an '04 OB. I haven't had to replace yet (277 hrs), but it can't be too hard. Have you tried to tighten it up?

I have just changed the belt it was so worn out! I simply unhook the water-pump water-line to install the new belt hope this is method is ok!

That's great. We have to assume that the reason you haven't been on here in a while is you've been out enjoying that Moomba.
