Overheating / Serpentine

Hi,
I have a 1998 Bluebird with a Cummins 6bt engine. The bus was overheating so I topped off the coolant and oil, it was still overheating. I looked closer and found the shredded belt (serpentine belt). I have the belt ordered for delivery, but have no idea how to put it on. Any advice, videos or diagrams of how to put it on would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Hope

Check to make sure the flaps

Check to make sure the flaps on the radiator are open when the bus is running. My bus has flaps that are supposed to open and close automatically. Had to disconnect the wire for the flaps why the bus is off. Haven't had a heat issue since

I have a 98 with a 5.9 too. I believe, unfortunately, that you need to pull the radiator. I'd love to be wrong. Mine's in ok shape but it's old.
