I believe Nixoro is correct, just not entirely sure if the a/c pulley will be in way (may need to remove pulley)

Signal to noise ratio is pretty low on this forum.  All the threads seem to go off-topic pretty quickly.  Oh yeah, I'm one of the reasons why  Wink

Do people concur with Nixoro?  If so, then that's what we'll do.  (I don't need a ton of replies, but Nixoro wasn't completely sure.)

Yep, Nixoro was correct, you can get by using the different belt.  Wink

It is not in the way of a direct shot from the power steering pump to the crank.  Don't think anything else is in the way either.

The more i think about this the more dodgy it sounds. That's a hefty engine and it should have fired even with a seized compressor. It should have fired up and burnt an Aux belt, with a lot of smoke as it went. Also, a seized compressor wouldn't inhibit the fuel pump or spark generation, and you did say it was cranking.   Roll Eyes

I'm still going with the crankshaft sensor, intermittent breakdown, probably in the cable. The sensors are pretty reliable, it is usually the cable at fault. That happened with mine, ran ok for a few days then bam, same thing. Could be coincidence with the A/C.

Anyway, I'm just packing my last bag as i speak.  Wink

* EDIT * MarksDTM, Back me up.....Please.  Wink

I agree.....it 'should' have started......I can slip the belt on the crank pulley with a ratchet and socket...!!!!

I feel the 'gonad' is still safe......

You can also use an aircon aux belt from a 2.0 16V to bypass the aircon pump to if you struggle to source the V6 one.
