    Hi all,, well truck broke down again, first it was trans, had it rebuilt everything was good, Sister has truck in NC from OK, when she got there she lost power steering was able to get to where she was going, after she opened up the hood the belt was missing and the pulley was just laying there aff the truck she had some friends look at it her sons freinds they are all Marines, he is saying the key that holds the pully on is sheared off and the camshaft part that sticks out is ground down. do we need a new camshaft or is it two differance parts sorry don't know how to explain it. any thought, she is stuck there now. Help

    Since when does the ps belt have anything to do with the camshaft? Sure they aren't talking about the ps pump shaft?

    x2. And if they've confused the PS pump shaft with the cam shaft, I wouldn't let them go anywhere near that truck with a wrench!

    No way, the timing belt is on the crank so the truck would not run with that pulley missing.

    Timing belt runs off crankshaft gear, power steering runs off crankshaft pulley.

    Ah yes thank you. But still, the alternator is run off that same pulley. The battery would go dead in a hurry.

    The problem is they are all Marines. Marines are only good at destroying stuff. Not repairing. :)
