Todd, if I were to put a 4" pulley on then I would need a 30" belt right with a 2 1/4 pulley on the alternator..Does that sound correct to you.. That should be right if you used a 2-1/2" pulley at the crank..and the belt is 28" long that you used..
Sorry Beave, I missed this post of yours. Yes a 30 inch belt (30-3/4" actual length) is what I used here for a 4 inch crank and a 2 inch alternator pulley. Thats the multi rib serpentine type belt, I have not played with the V-groove pulleys to figure out how to measure them for belt size.

I used a 30" serpentine belt on mine [ 4" to 2"] and I have the alternator on the bike and I crank it up to see if she would spin proper, and she did a wonderful job for me, Todd put a hold on those brackets & covers , I figured something else out.. what gauge wire is needed from the main power line from the alt. to the battery? man I should have got one at the junk yard..darn...

I used what appears to be 6 guage wire. its what I had at the time.8 guage should be OK. Check with an electrician to be safe. up to 14.5volts and say 55amps for short periods of time. The exciter wire can be 14-16 guage wire.



Beave send me some pics of your creation, you might have made an improvement on my design and I would love to see it.

That's a 10-4 good buddy..I love how the lettering on the new belt looks as it spins, I couldn't run it long without the radiator on though...I'm such a kid...Listen up guy's the JB Weld is merly there justto hold the sockets together when I take it all apart, you could use it without it but I added it for a sercurity blanket, I all ready gottold not to do that by someone smarter and wiser than me..I'd be a complete fool not to use some under the socket too now wouldn't I..?I'm notasking for anyone to make their's like I did, just telling how I did mine is all..Todd I used a 1/2" bolt and some heavy duty flat stock to fasten the lower alt. I just enlarged the hole on the alt. and I used you idea on the pipehanger, that was just brillent, I twisted some smaller flat stock to fit the top bolt hole and bend one side up so the all thread can go thru it..I'll have photo's for ya tomorrow.. I hope..My dremel has been busy..

Thanks Todd! I changed the bracket a little bit so I could get the alt. closer to thenew support. On the alt adjusting bracket I used Todd's idea also, but I also took an L piece, drilled it out big enough so it would float up & down on the adjusting bolt. On the alt, you will notice an extra nut on the end of the bolt that holds this L piece, this is because I tightened the bolt just enough so it would swivel as it travels on the adjusting rod !! Enjoy the pic's,....... back to work!! Bob
