964 distributor belt broke on the dyno

Trying to get good dyno data for Steve Wong to burn custom software for the 964 3.6 engine in my '86.

First dyno pulls in March, the full throttle microswitch on my engine was dead so only got 265whp and never got into the full throttle maps. Fixed that problem and headed to the dyno yesterday for round 2. On the first pull, the belt in the 964 distributor apparently broke so the results were lousy and had to abandon the rest of the pulls.

Have to tear apart the distributor tomorrow to be ready for the new belt from our host to arrive Friday so I can get it all back together and back on the dyno for attempt #3 Saturday.

This is getting frustrating and expensive, $200 each time I set up on the dyno.

'86 911 Coupe (endless 3.6 transplant finally done!)
'14 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 Turbodiesel (yes they make one)
'97 BMW 528i (the sensible car, bought new)
'12 Vintage/Millenium 23' v-nose enclosed trailer

That belt about $15 and will take 2 hrs to replace. I automatically replaced mine every year
