RESTORING HISTORY ONE CAR AT A TIME

Adjusting the Fan Belt

The fan and water pump both operate from the same shaft. The shaft is driven by a “V” shaped rubber belt. The belt is adjusted to the proper tension when the car leaves the factor and this adjustment should not be changed unless the belt slips. The adjustment is easily made by loosening the generator adjusting arm stud nut, and moving the generator forward. Do not tighten more than is actually necessary to keep it from slipping.
