Alternator belt

Post by Lucky » Thu Jan 26, 2012 9:21 pm

Anyone tell me what flavour I need? Mine seems to be completely devoid of any writing that might give me a hint what to order. Need another to fit a double sheave pulley, y'see. Ta vurrah much :)

Most importantly buy 2 new ones so they are the same length, an old one will be lots longer.
As for the size erm.................. 800 x 9.5 ish I think, cant be sure, sorry.
Someone with a brain will be along soon !

Don't know about the brain but I knowse what I likes:

Gates Automaster 6237MC. Supplied to me by Rotechnics in 2003 and it still looks like new. Though bear in mind I'm not hammering down the motorways every day. More like OOh look, a bluebell wood/ horse in a field/ or.....nasty rain cloud coming, might rain on Gus, best get home ....whilst not exceeding 3500 rpm under any circumstances.

I've noted Ferrodo VS 800 might be an equivalent, but I don't know that for sure.

sounds like it could be due a decoke Dave... bring it to a meet... I've got a miracle technique for getting the carbon out of your engine... drive it well past the buzzer and hold it there for a while... does it the world of good! :lol:

Wouldn't Titanic have got wet going out to sea? Can't have that, Oh dear me no.
"Everybody off, this ship is going back into dry dock".

She'd still be around then.

Thanks for the tips, Dave. ;) The belt info, too :lol:

Funnily enough, they had an article on the Titanic on the news today, some event commemorating 100 years since it sank. They interviewed relatives of people who were on the ship, one woman was going on about her uncle and ended with the rather odd statement that "having put his fiancee in a lifeboat he stayed and was lost with the ship. They still haven't found his body." :roll:

.....you know what, I don't think they're going to, either :?
