Has anyone had a problem with the gilmer belt on the water pump? I have been running the gilmer on my water pump and kse for about 4 years with no problems. I did put a new water pump on and a steel fan...what im wondering is if the weight of the steel fan was to much for the gilmer and should i step up to the htd belt?

I would not recommend running the Gilmer belt with a steel fan. The cogs on the belt aren't designed to take the stress exerted by the heavy fan. I run the HTD belt with my steel fan, and it works great. I think the Gilmer setup is better suited for the asphalt guys running electric fans.
