In Summer! lol

Damn i never though by over tightening the belt tensionner it would be enough to break 2 out of 3 bolts that holds down the Viscous heater. The belt in question runs around the crank pulley, AC, tensionner and Viscous Heater.

And pretty sure the whole reason for this is my belt issue

I couldn't find the toyota belt so i went and bought a 4 grooves belt that IMHO was the same design but a bit longer. At first it worked. But then it started to slip, i then tightened the belt and probably went too hard on it. But for the belt to slip on the first place it wasn't probably the same V design or something. I should have keeped the old one until i get a new from japan4x4.

Now i have 2 bolts broken flush to casting on my block!
