Mileage does vary greatly for everyone it seems. Perhaps the front belt wasn`t tight enough, at least this was probably the cause for my front belt to skip, so the pulley heated up and melted, desintegrating both itself and the belt in the process. However, on my second and third attempt again I wasn`t able to tighten it properly via the diff hub on the bulkhead, so i put in a 14t in place of the 13t and the problem was solved for me. While I was at it I decided to swap all pulleys to aluminum to avoid any future problems with the plastic pulleys.
