The Right Belts

Author: CFF

A noise in a convertible, that only happened under acceleration, was found to be caused by the fan on the 100-amp alternator rubbing against the right inner fender panel whenever the engine was torqued excessively. Replacing the fan belts will usually cure the problem.

Use the same part number again, because if you compare the old with the new, don’t be surprised to find as much as one inch difference due to stretch with wear!

To get the “shorter” belts on, removal of the locating screw on the alternator adjustment arm is sometimes necessary. If that is not enough, the lower mounting bolt will have to be removed and the alternator allowed to cant inwards to receive the belts.
