My belt broke on my snow blower, the one that drives the wheels. I took it off searched ebay for a replacement part number. Found one that says it fits that model but the belt that came is a non v – belt its just a plane flat style belt, same width and lenthg though. Will this work the same or is it critical to have the v belt ribbed on the bottom style?
if you took a v-belt off, replace it with a v-belt.
a flat belt will not work. almost any hardware,
or parts store will have what you need take
old belt in and they will match it.

Today on our 2013 Hyundai Elantra well be test fitting the Glacier V-trac Cable Snow Tire Chains, part number pw1930v. Well be test fitting these tire chains on tire size 205/55-16. Now this vehicle is front wheel drive so we will be installing the tire chains on the front set of tires. To begin our test fit, well lay the chains flat out on the ground to undo any kinks or tangles. This will ensure that the tire chain will fit correctly around the tire. Well now drape the tire chain over the tire making sure it is centered and the hooks are facing out so we dont cause any damage to the outer wall of the tire.
Note: Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information.

I know you don’t put on your breaks but thats about it. Today is going to be the first day ever that I am driving in snow and I am kind of scared I really don’t want to get killed or hurt anyone else. SO what do I do if my car starts to slide? Thanks so much for your answers! =)
turn ur wheels in the direction of the skid and take ur foot off the accelerator
My gf’s car has a lot of light scratches all over (not deep enough to catch with your fingernail), and i was wondering what the best scratch remover/polish would be for removing them?
i’ve tried meguiars scratch-x; didn’t work too well.
look on line for a product call gs 27 it was an infomercial thing but it works I bought mine from an auto part store small independent store no big chain but it works on all color cars
My wife had it in 4 wheel and backed out of the snow-packed drive way. We can not get it out of 4 Wheel.
Try putting it in 2-wheel drive, and backing up for about 100 feet or so. That should knock it out.
How have car manufacturers improved their safety features over the years?
Safety features improved from the first car made, to cars now in 2009?
links would be helpful, please & thank you
Overall, in terms of safety, which cars are better American cars or foreign cars?
The first cars had mechanical linkages to brakes, they now have hydraulics and ABS to help stopping. The brakes have changed from the old drums to discs. Split hydraulic systems were brought in in the 1960s, so that if one set goes you still have some braking capability.
Steering has improved with new types of linkages, some of the really old cars had chains to the wheels, like on a boat.
Some old cars only had leaf springs and no shock absorbers, now there are many different types of suspension.
From the 1970s, collapsible steering columns came in, now replaced with airbags.
Progressive crumpling of all panels now provides better occupant safety.
Now you can get Electronic Stability control, to help you get out of trouble in an emergency.
American cars are recognised world wide as being very poor for safety, only marginally better than Chinese, the worlds worst. The best are definitely European, (Mercedes, Volvo, Saab, Audi) followed by Japan, Toyota, Subaru, Honda) and Australia, (Ford, Holden, Toyota).
