Doesn't look too bad. Loosen tension at alternator, thread through fan blades.

I recently viewed a YT video where a belt was replaced. I can’t find it but I think it was Ryan Lynch. You could email him and ask he’s good about responding.

R&R of fan belt on M7060 appears very similar to similar task on my M7040. Loosen idler pully nut, remove belt from pulleys work belt around fan blades. Repeat process in opposite direction then set idler to apply tension on belt then tighten nut. Easy Peasy.

That's interesting. The 7040 I looked at definitely showed the alternator as the idler. I think the difference is cab vs ROP. In any case, it's pretty straight forward.

You're correct I had AC drive belt on my mind since I changed that belt on my M7040 a few months ago. Irregardless changing either or both belts is fairly easy. Both alternator & AC compressor belt fits around water pump/fan drive pulley.
