1989 Winnebago Chieftain w/ 454 Bill 5-23-16  
I am having trouble changing the belts on this 454, I can see the top of one the belts in the dog house, looking through the hood I can only see the radiator, I haven't checked from underneath yet, any suggestions or tricks. It looks like 4 belts on this engine. Thanks for your help Bill

I personally have done this job

Best way: two people, a drop cloth to keep the crud off the interior. Two sets of wrenches, pry bars and sockets. Don't forget to drop cloth the path to the entry door.

One person needs to work under and the top person needs a mirror and light.

In my case it was a two case of beer job but no beer until the job is done, Its that big a pain.
