Still, better to find the problem before you replace the belt, unless you are sure it was the belt itself that was the problem.
Smoking the belt and squealing with "blazing hot" crank pulley after only a brief startup?

What we don't know is whether the engine was running normally in recent past, or was this the new owner's first startup after a long lay time.

True, but it sounds like it had been running normally until recently, and look sin otherwise good condition. I think he said that both pumps are turning freely by hand too.

Yes the engine was fine before all of this happened. I still have yet to get back down to the boat but plan to loosen the belts and see what I can turn.

Ill then perform a maintenance on it, replaec belts, oli, impeller etc.. change out the rw supply line. before and after the pump.

Ill let you guys know what the deal is ... thank you !
